Another low pressure system is bringing snow to Halifax as a special weather statement remains in effect.

Environment and Climate Change Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard said the snow should continue falling into the early evening.

"It's staying just as snow here in the Halifax region and we're expecting snowfall totals before all this is said and done to be around 10 to 12 cm by this evening," Hubbard said in a Thursday morning interview.

Once this system moves away, the temperature will drop, giving us a frigid start to the long weekend.

"Overnight lows tonight are going to be around -13 in Halifax," said Hubbard. "Going through the day Friday, we're only expecting the temperature to reach about -9 for the daytime high."

"Then in the overnight period, Friday night we're expecting these temperatures to drop even further down to anywhere between -17 and -22 for parts of Halifax."

There may be some flurries throughout the rest of the weekend, but the forecast isn't calling for any significant weather we need to worry about.
