Winter Storm Inga Update One

12:05 PM AST Wednesday 17 January 2018
Snowfall warning in effect for:

Halifax Metro and Halifax County West
Snowfall, with total amounts of 15 to 20 cm is expected.

A low pressure system south of Cape Cod will approach the Maritimes today. The low will track northeastward near the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia tonight to lie over Newfoundland on Thursday.

Snow associated with this system has spread across Nova Scotia and will continue this afternoon and tonight and taper to flurries early Thursday morning over these regions.

In addition there is a risk of freezing rain over southern and central areas of the province tonight. Over extreme southern coastal areas a change to rain is likely.

Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 centimetres are now expected for all areas of the province except coastal areas of Shelburne and Queens Counties.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
