Blizzard Warning

Issued at 15:57 Monday 08 February 2016
Summary

Blizzard conditions with poor visibility in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring. A low pressure system located southeast of Cape Cod this afternoon will track south of Nova Scotia tonight. Snow associated with this system will be heavy at times and will combine with strong northeast winds to give widespread blowing snow that will reduce visibilities to near zero. Snowfall amounts near 30 centimetres are currently expected over much of Nova Scotia, with higher amounts possible in the north east. The snow will taper to flurries through the day on Tuesday. Additionally, this system will give higher than normal water levels and rough surf along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia at the high tides tonight and again Tuesday. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop. Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherASPC@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NSStorm.
