Rainfall warning in effect

Queens County
Rain, at times heavy, is expected.

A slow-moving cold front will approach from the northwest today and move
over the region tonight then remain nearly stationary over the province on
Thursday. Rain at times heavy from this system will spread slowly from
northwest to southeast later today and persist on Thursday. General rainfall
amounts of 50 to 90 millimetres can be expected with amounts possibly
exceeding 100 millimetres in parts of northern and western Nova Scotia.

Rainfall warnings will likely be extended eastward to other parts of the
province later today as this system continues to slowly develop.

Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Localized
flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Watch for possible washouts near
rivers, creeks and culverts.

Rainfall Warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected.
