If you’re travelling, expect messy roads throughout the Maritimes as a widespread system delivers a mix of precipitation.

Special weather statements remain for Nova Scotia with 5-20 cm of wet, heavy snow Thursday through Friday afternoon and strong east winds.

Wind warnings are also in effect for Digby, Yarmouth and Shelburne counties, with easterly gusts up to 70 km/h, but 90 km/h along the coast.

There is also a les suêtes wind warning for Inverness County -Mabou and north.

A snowfall warning has been issued for Victoria County with 15 to 20 cm except 30 cm over higher terrain from early Thursday evening until Friday evening.

Meanwhile, the weather forecast has prompted some school closures in the Annapolis Valley and the Tri-County regional centres for education and delayed openings at some NSCC campuses.
