An intense low pressure system will bring rain, snow and freezing rain to Nova Scotia tonight. The precipitation will begin this morning as light rain then intensify later in the day.

Heavy snow can be expected north of this boundary with heavy rain to its south. A mix of snow and rain is expected along the boundary combined with an extended period of freezing rain which could lead to significant icing. The bulk of precipitation should end over Western Nova Scotia overnight and by Sunday morning over eastern mainland Nova Scotia. Over Cape Breton, periods of snow may continue through the day Sunday.

The strong winds associated with the storm will give rough and pounding surf to most coastlines of the Northumberland strait on Sunday. They will also generate a storm surge which will combine with large tides to give higher than normal water levels. High water level warnings may be required at a later time. Please monitor future forecasts for any updates.
