Special weather statement issued for Nova Scotia ahead of Wednesday’s storm

Today promises to be a great day weather-wise, with just a few clouds in the forecast and a high of 6 degrees, but tomorrow will be a much different story.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement before a storm that is expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds to the region late Wednesday and Thursday.

In the statement, issued for the entirety of Nova Scotia and most of New Brunswick, the national forecaster says the region could see rainfall amounts in the 30-50 mm range, with the potential of more in southern areas of Nova Scotia.

The statement also warned of the potential of strong winds during the same period, with gusts between 70 and 90 km/h possible.

Much like this past weekend, Environment Canada says with the ground still frozen in many areas, its ability to absorb rain is diminished, which could lead to localized flooding in some areas.
