Special weather statement remains in effect as timing of spring storm shifts

There has been a slight shift in timing, but a special weather statement for a storm at the end of the week remained on Wednesday morning.

Environment Canada issued the alert yesterday. Forecasters are now predicting that a significant amount of snow, anywhere from 10-20 cm, could fall on the province, with more possible over Cape Breton.

The national forecaster now says that the snow will begin Thursday morning and last through Saturday afternoon, with winds gusting between 70 and 80 km per hour at times.

With temperatures near the freezing mark, the snow is expected to change to rain and back to snow several times throughout the storm. Forecasters say wet and heavy snow could impact tree limbs and utilities.
