Flash freeze warning in effect for Pictou County:

This is a warning that potentially hazardous conditions are expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.

A low pressure system west of Nova Scotia is pushing a mix of precipitation through the province as it tracks northeastward. Rain at times heavy is falling over most regions. Rain will gradually diminish today. Rainfall amounts between 30 and 50 millimetres are expected by later this morning.

Winter storm conditions are occurring over Northern Nova Scotia where temperatures are colder with ice pellets and freezing rain this morning switching back to periods of snow later today.

Strong southeast winds are forecast ahead of the low with gusts of up to 130 km/h from Margaree Harbour to Bay St. Lawrence this morning.

As this system passes on today, a cold northerly flow will cause temperatures to drop rapidly from above to well below zero. Water covered surfaces such as roadways and sidewalks may quickly become ice covered.
