Damp days ahead this week in Halifax

A soggy stretch is in store for the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and much of Nova Scotia.

While no weather warnings have been issued, the latest forecast from Environment Canada calls for up to 20 mm of rain across the region on Tuesday afternoon and winds gusting as high as 60 km/h.

The national forecaster’s thunderstorm outlook lists a “moderate” risk for storms along the entire Atlantic-facing coastline of the mainland on Tuesday.

The rain and wind will continue into the evening and overnight hours, with an additional 5-10 mm expected.

For tomorrow, we can expect fog in the morning and a chance of more showers in the afternoon.  No sun is forecast until Friday.

The Halifax area can use the rain. According to Environment Canada, Halifax Stanfield International Airport recorded just 33.7 mm of rain this month, as of May 27. The historical precipitation average for the month is 109.7 mm.

Elsewhere in Nova Scotia, a Les Suetes wind warning was issued for Inverness County with wind gusts of up to 90 km/h expected Tuesday.

High winds and rain were blamed for power outages impacting thousands of people in Pictou and Annapolis counties.
