Environment Canada is calling for another wet weekend in Nova Scotia, with up to 80 millimeters expected in some parts.

Meteorologist Ian Hubbard says a large low-pressure system that stretches as far as the great lakes is what’s causing the rainfall and due to it’s size it will be around for most of the weekend.

Rain is expected in virtually the whole province at sometime over the weekend, but the areas expected to be impacted the most are along the Atlantic Coast.

“Rainfall warnings are in place along the coast starting in Shelburne, into Halifax all the way up to Guysbourough County, and although some of that rain will make it inland the heaviest downfall will be on the shoreline,” Hubbard said.

The rain will be tracking northwest so it’s possible communities in Cape Breton could also be put under a rainfall warning over the weekend.

Thunder is also a possibility, particularly along the South Shore which has already had confirmed strikes on Friday morning.

The good news is that when this system clears out Sunday night and into Monday Hubbard says it will likely clear out some of the humid conditions the province has been experiencing in recent months.

Rainfall warnings are currently in place for Shelburne, Lunenburg, Queens, Guysborough, and Halifax (all regions) counties.
