Blizzard warning in effect for:
  • Lunenburg County
Blizzard conditions with poor visibility in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring.

A low pressure system currently south of Cape Hatteras will intensify as it tracks up the U.S. eastern seaboard tonight then pass south of Nova Scotia Monday night. Snow associated with this system will begin near noon Monday over southwestern portions of the province then spread eastward through the day. High winds associated with this storm combined with snow will result in widespread reduced visibilities over the province. 20 to 35 centimetres of snow are currently expected over much of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton before tapering to flurries on Tuesday.

Additionally this system will give higher than normal water levels and rough surf along the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia Monday night.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.

Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to [email protected] or tweet reports to #NSStorm.

well i think i need professional help. lol
driving home from work today in these blizzard conditions, i kept wondering......is the wind that perfect direction that blows all the snow out of my driveway, leaving it a barren snowless wasteland ?
the closer i got to home the more my heart sank......large sections of roadway blown bare of snow. i pull into my road......more wind blown bareness ! come around the last corner before my driveway......the corner is bare...ohh nooo !!
get up to my driveway.....and ohhh yeah.....fist pump.....all the snow being wind blown off the street is piling up in my driveway !!!

Toronto is supposed to get down to -24 C on Saturday night. It was +5 yesterday, and +3 today. Still, I can see the lawn needs mowing, but thats another forum.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...

I was watching the radar, looks like all the snow in NS is blowing toward your driveway, you should be ecstatic.
