EC has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Halifax east including Cape Breton for tomorrow night. Lots of spread in the amounts among the models at this point.

This is an alert to the potential development of dangerous winter weather conditions late Thursday night in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.

A low pressure system is expected to develop well south of Nova Scotia tonight and will intensify on Thursday as it approaches Sable Island from the south. On Thursday night the low will continue to deepen and is expected to approach Cape Breton towards dawn Friday. As the low approaches snow at times heavy is expected to develop late Thursday evening over over much of Northeast Mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton. Those areas could see snowfall amounts possibly exceeding 10 to 15 centimetres by dawn Friday with more snow likely during the morning hours on Friday. Strong northerly winds ahead of the low will also cause blowing snow late Thursday night and into Friday morning over many of those aforementioned regions. There is still some uncertainty as to the exact track of this low with snowfall amounts greatly depending on its final track.

It appears the track of this storm will keep it well south and east of here and here's hoping it stays that way! We have more than enough snow from the storm earlier today. <_<

Now appears to be an eastern NS/Cape Breton system with greater amounts for Cape Breton.

This storm definitely dumped significant snow in Cape Breton. Walked to work around 4:45 a.m. Friday - the street I live on had yet to be plowed, and had more than 2 feet of snow.

Yes it was quite a storm up your way. Blizzard conditions with the high winds.
