We’re bracing for our first winter storm, but it’s not snow.

Up to 50 millimetres of rain could fall tomorrow into Saturday in some areas of the province, along with up to 90 kilometre an hour wind gusts.

Special Weather Statements are in effect for all of Nova Scotia.

The storm is expected to begin late tomorrow morning in Southwestern NS before reaching Cape Breton by evening.

Large waves will create higher than normal water levels along the southern coastline.

Nova Scotia Power will open their Emergency Operations Centre tomorrow morning.

Storm lead Sean Borden says crews will be positioned across the province so that potential power outages can be restored and holiday plans can go ahead.
