Rainfall Warning

Issued at 04:39 Saturday 19 January 2019

Summary

Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. A strong winter storm will track across the Maritimes Sunday and Sunday night. Snow ahead of this system Sunday morning will change to rain at times heavy Sunday afternoon. 5 to 10 cm of snow will be followed by 25 mm of rain over southwestern Nova Scotia by late Sunday afternoon. Rain at times heavy will continue Sunday night with total amounts likely exceeding 50 mm in many areas before rain ends Monday morning. Rainfall warnings will likely be extended to the remainder of the province later today to cover the Sunday night period. Strong southeast winds gusting up to 80 km/h are expected later Sunday afternoon, and if these gust higher Sunday night wind warnings may be required. In addition, these winds combined with a high run of astronomical tides this weekend will give elevated water levels and heavy pounding surf along parts of the Atlantic coast during high tides Sunday night and Monday. ### Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NSstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NSStorm.
