Statements

Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Halifax County - east of Porters Lake

Significant rain, strong southwest winds and very mild temperatures likely Thursday and Thursday night.

A warm front will approach the Maritimes from the southwest on Wednesday and cross the Maritimes Wednesday night. This front will usher in much milder air and strengthening southwest winds. Snow or rain will likely spread across Nova Scotia Wednesday night, likely changing to rain throughout the entire province by Thursday morning.

At this time, indications are that rain, strong southwest winds and very mild temperatures will persist throughout Nova Scotia until Friday morning. A return to colder, drier weather is expected on Friday.

Areas that are vulnerable to excess rain falling on frozen ground may have issues with water not being absorbed or draining off well. This is particularly true over portions of northern Nova Scotia where there is snow cover to melt during the mild weather and rain.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NSstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NSStorm.
