Rainfall warning for most of N.S. Friday to Saturday

Most of Nova Scotia, including Cape Breton, is in for very wet, windy weather followed by a fast freeze.

Environment Canada’s rainfall warning calls for 25 to 50 mm with south winds gusting 70-90 km/h from Friday evening to Saturday evening.

The forecaster says the frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall and localized flooding is possible.

Make sure storm drains are clear to assist with drainage.

As well, a temperature drop after the rain could cause very slippery conditions.
