A wet and icy mix of precipitation may impact travel.

Environment Canada has issued rainfall and freezing rain warnings for Nova Scotia.

Most of the province will see heavy downpours with 30-50 mm of rainfall until Thursday evening.

Rain will transition through freezing rain, ice pellets, and snow before it tapers off Thursday night.

Freezing rain warnings are in effect for the central and northern mainland, the Annapolis Valley, Inverness County – Mabou and north, and Victoria County.

The forecaster advises that ice build-up may cause tree branches to break and that utility outages may occur.

Environment Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard says it will be a ‘tricky’ storm.

“You should pay really close attention to the forecast details for your area. Especially if anyone needs to travel or be out in it,” said Hubbard.

Meanwhile, there are several cancellations and delays at the Halifax Stanfield, so check your flight status before heading to the airport.
