    A low pressure system over the Great Lakes will affect the Maritimes on Monday. A warm front associated with this system will cross the Bay of Fundy Monday afternoon. Precipitation from this system will begin early in the morning in the southwest and spread north during the afternoon. Precipitation will start as snow and change through ice pellets, freezing rain and then to rain by Monday evening. Rain will continue overnight and into Tuesday morning.

    Over northern and Western Nova Scotia snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 centimetres are forecast as well as a few hours of freezing rain.

    Locally higher rainfall amounts of up to 40 millimetres are forecast for areas along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia from Halifax to Yarmouth.

    The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

    Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.

    Powerlines make your job interesting. I can only imagine what snow does.

    Woke up at 8, no snow...look out my window at 8:40 and it's snowing like crazy, road is covered. I get more snow up here than Fredericton does though (high elevation).

    It's supposed to stay pretty warm, isn't it?

    Even that amount of rain is going to make it a miserable day.. Snow would turn Halifax into parking lot.. :lol:

    Edit: Oh. So they are calling for a bit of snow before changing to rain...:o

    10-15cm in Fredericton plus "hours" of freezing rain. Should be fun.

    In Middle Sackville it is freezing rain. Accumulating on the roads fairly quickly so everyone drive safe.

    So I guess this means I should put the winter tires on today. I've been holding off because it has been so warm and warm weather really eats up winter tires.

    Looks like you might be right. Just checked the weather and we aren't really going to have any snow. I work from home and if I can't avoid the weather due to an appointment I can take the other car that already has winters on (had a tire self destruct a couple months ago and the rest were ready to be replaced so just put the winters on early.)

    Looks like straight up rain here now. Haven't heard anything frozen hit the window in hours.

    4.3 °C across the street at the Citadel so that explains it

    Does 15° qualify as special weather for the middle of the night in December? :crazy:

    Some good thunder and lightning last night!

    and they're saying 10-15cm on Sunday now. Probably just rain.
