Rainfall Warning

Issued at 22:07 Sunday 20 January 2019

Summary

Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. A strong winter storm tracking across the Maritimes tonight is giving rain at times heavy and mild temperatures to Nova Scotia. The rain will end over southwestern Nova Scotia overnight tonight or early Monday morning. The rain will end over the remainder of the province later Monday morning. A total of 30 mm to 50 mm of rain is forecast over much of Nova Scotia. The accumulated snow that fell earlier today on the frozen ground, combined with the expected rainfall and very mild temperatures tonight followed by rapidly falling temperatures during the day Monday, could lead to treacherous conditions. Strong southerly winds gusting up to 100 km/h are expected with the rain and mild temperatures tonight. As such a wind warning is now in effect for the entire province. ### 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.
