Most of Mainland Nova Scotia is under a winter storm warning with upwards of 25 centimetres of snow and blowing snow expected beginning tonight and continuing Sunday.

A low pressure system currently well south of the Great Lakes will track eastward today and become an intense nor'Easter tonight as it tracks along the coast of Nova Scotia. This storm will bring a large swath of heavy snow to Nova Scotia along with blowing snow in strong northerly winds. 20 to 40 centimetres of snow can be expected for most of Mainland Nova Scotia with the exception of Eastern Nova Scotia which is forecast to change over to rain for several hours on Sunday before changing back to snow.
