Brace yourselves for a cold snap after Thursday’s disturbance passes Nova Scotia. Temperatures are set to plummet across the province Thursday night into Friday with windchill values reaching -24 in areas around Amherst and -20 in areas such as New Glasgow, Pictou, Truro and Greenwood. Halifax and Cape Breton can expect it to feel as low as -19.
A track further southeast for our incoming system, means less snow for Nova Scotia.
That said, still expect a slick Thursday evening commute.
In behind, we'll see strong winds & the coldest temps so far this season on Fri & Sat.
