Environment Canada is warning of the potential freezing rain that could hit Pictou County.

More winter weather is expected to hit Pictou County this weekend.

The organization says a trough of low pressure will move over the Maritimes later today and remain nearly stationary over the region throughout the weekend. Freezing rain warnings have been issued for tonight over Northern Nova Scotia. 

"There is concern regarding the duration of a possible prolonged period of freezing rain and the impacts this type of event could have on the province. Latest forecast models suggest that some areas of the province could see freezing rain or ice pellets persisting for most of the day on Sunday," the statement reads.

"There is a high degree of uncertainty with this type of weather event and Environment Canada will continue to closely monitor the development of this system providing updates as new information becomes available."
