A weather warning is now in effect. Click here to view all affected communities.
A spring storm approaching from the southwest will reach Nova Scotia’s Minas Basin Friday evening, then find its way to the Avalon by Saturday morning. A strong south wind on the bottom of the system will pull in warm air and serve up waves of heavy rain. Spring tides will result in higher than normal water levels and could cause some localized flooding along southeast facing coastlines. If you’re on the northern edge of the low, you’ll experience a mix of ice pellets and rain; the NW corner of New Brunswick is under a snowfall warning! The first of two cold fronts will cross the region on Saturday but temperatures are expected to recover very nicely on Sunday. The second cold front will bring back wind chill; feel-like temperatures will range from -10 to -15 early next week.
