Nova Scotia residents are being warned to brace for a mix of precipitation, including rain, freezing rain, and ice pellets, starting Wednesday afternoon and lasting through Thursday. The event is expected to impact central Nova Scotia the most.

According to Environment Canada, the precipitation event will begin as a mix of freezing rain and ice pellets on Wednesday afternoon, before transitioning to mainly rain overnight. The precipitation is expected to continue throughout Thursday, though it is expected to be mostly rain by that point.

Central Nova Scotia, including Halifax, is expected to be the most impacted by the event, with up to 10 mm of ice accumulation possible in some areas. This could lead to hazardous driving conditions and power outages.

The mixed precipitation event is being attributed to a low-pressure system moving up the eastern coast of North America. While the system is not expected to bring significant snowfall to Nova Scotia, it is expected to bring a mix of precipitation that could create dangerous conditions for drivers and pedestrians alike.

Environment Canada is advising residents to stay tuned to weather updates and warnings as the event approaches, and to take all necessary precautions to stay safe during the event.
