Another messy storm system like the one that hit the Maritimes Wednesday is on its way for the weekend.

Environment Canada is forecasting wet and windy conditions for Nova Scotia Saturday.

Precipitation will develop over western areas Saturday morning and will reach Cape Breton later in the day.

We could get up to 25 mm of rainfall along the Atlantic coast.

There will also be a risk of freezing rain across some parts of the province.

As well, a wind warning has been issued for Digby, Queens, Shelburne and Yarmouth counties.

Maximum wind gusts could get up to 150 km/h or higher from Margaree Harbour to Bay St. Lawrence.
