Large storm system to bring snow and rain to HRM

You’ve heard of April showers…but what about April snow?

A blast of winter is expected to hit Nova Scotia over the next few days, but how much snow you see will depend on where you are.  A special weather statement remains in effect for a large part of Nova Scotia, including HRM, warning of several days of mixed wintry precipitation and winds gusting to 80 km/h. The advisory from Environment Canada says some parts of Nova Scotia could see as much as 20 cm or more between Thursday and Friday afternoon.

CityNews Weather Specialist John Wilson says HRM, particularly along the coast, probably won’t see much snow, around 5 cm mixing with rain.  Further inland, in western Nova Scotia and parts of Cape Breton, could see amounts closer to 20 cm are possible.  Environment Canada issuing a snowfall warning for Victoria County, where as much as 30 cm is possible over higher terrain.

Wind warnings were issued Thursday morning for Digby, Shelburne, Yarmouth and Inverness counties, where gusts could exceed 90 km/h.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport is asking people to monitor their flight status this morning in case the weather causes delays.
