It was a messy start to the week on Monday, with snow and freezing rain in the forecast for Halifax. 

Environment Canada called for five cm of snow and ice pellets, changing over to rain later in the morning. 

Weather Specialist John Wilson said the sooner the temperature rose, the better. 

"Overnight snow with a chance of a little freezing rain as the temperature comes up and changes to rain, and finally quits," said Wilson. "The temperature is going to plus five so the sooner we're above zero, the better."

Road conditions were said to be poor Monday morning, although crews spent the night clearing snow in town. 

The forecast is looking much better for the rest of the week, with sun and temperatures well above freezing.
