Nova Scotia could face serious damage today from freezing rain and ice pellets, according to Environment Canada.
A trough of low pressure moved through the Maritimes over the weekend, bringing a cold air mass with it. The trough was expected to move back inland today, creating an extensive area of freezing rain and ice pellets.
Including yesterday, up to 12 hours of freezing rain overall in Halifax is possible. The worst is expected to be in the Valley and northern Nova Scotia, where long-lasting infrastructure and tree damage is possible.
