If you’ve been enjoying warm weather and clear skies lately, be prepared for wet conditions as Nova Scotia is expected to experience messy weather starting on Tuesday.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Jim Pride has predicted that rain will initially hit areas near the coast before turning into snow on Tuesday afternoon. Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for most of Cape Breton and Guysborough County, where some areas could see over 25 centimetres of snow, while Inverness County-Mabou and north could experience maximum wind gusts up to 120 km/h.

Although Yarmouth and Shelburne counties are expected to be excluded, most of Nova Scotia could see anywhere from 10 to 20 centimetres of snow, with near-freezing temperatures making it hard to predict exact amounts. The snowfall could decrease depending on how much warm air mixes in.

Overnight, the snow will continue to accumulate, with possible exceptions along the coast where temperatures will be near freezing and rain may continue. Some areas near the coast may also have to deal with freezing rain and ice pellets.

Pride warns that the weather will likely cause chaos on Wednesday, but the rain and snow will ease up later that day. However, the Cape Breton Highlands and the Acadian Peninsula could see more snow on Thursday.
