Radar Map Snow is falling in the South Shore and in Antigonish. Snow is falling at a rate of 0. 1 mm/h Snow is moving from the south west to the north east.

Computer Model The system over Ontario will bring rain to NS in 48 h

Computer Model The system over Ontario will bring rain to NS in 48 h This model conflicts with the prediction of light snow A ski hill operator may hold of on any snow making and cancel activities for the day. A person heading south on a plane should not expect any delays. A Lobster fisherman in Yarmouth should plan on rain and rough seas and a blueberry farmer if in season may hold off on irragation of their crops.
