Special Weather Statement

Issued at 04:44 Thursday 27 January 2022

We are continuing to monitor the development of a potentially intense winter storm that will impact the province on Saturday and into Sunday.

Snow, high winds and blowing snow are expected to develop on Saturday morning, then change to rain throughout the course of the day. Current model guidance indicates that the changeover to rain will begin along the Atlantic coast late in the morning and progress westward throughout the afternoon, with a period of freezing rain and ice pellets expected during the transition. This period of freezing rain could be prolonged in parts of western and northern Nova Scotia.

Rain will change back to flurries early Sunday and then taper off later on Sunday.

Additionally, there is potential for storm surge and rough and pounding surf for the Atlantic coast of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island on Saturday afternoon and again early on Sunday.

Forecast details will become more clear as the system approaches.
