Freezing rain, rainfall warning issued for Halifax as storm approaches

A messy mix of weather is the way, with snow, freezing rain and rain in the forecast for Halifax

Weather warnings have been issued as a storm gets set to impact Halifax and much of the maritimes over the next couple of days. 

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning and a rainfall warning for Halifax. 

The national forecaster says precipitation will begin as snow on Thursday before switching over to freezing rain in the evening through the overnight hours. 

That freezing rain is expected to last longer further inland than along the coast. Some parts of the province could see 20 mm or more of freezing rain. 

It's eventually expected to change to rain on Friday as temperatures rise. 15 to 30 mm of rain is possible in Halifax. 

Environment Canada adds that it's possible wind warnings could be issued as well, as strong winds are expected to develop on Friday evening.
