Get ready for another round of winter.

Another snow storm hit the city overnight and it’s about to get very cold —with windchills of -27 degrees Celsius towards the end of the week.

RCMP warned motorists to take it easy on the drive this morning as roads are expected to be snow-covered and icy.


Guy Roussel, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, said the snow was expected to hit Halifax around 11 p.m. last night and switch to rain early in the morning.

“The rain will taper off or mix with snow around 9 a.m. (this) morning,” he said.

Environment Canada issued a winter storm watch yesterday for snowfall amounts between 10 to 15 centimetres inland and over high terrain.

Roussel predicted Halifax would get up to 10 centimetres.

“It’s going to be very cold on Thursday, with temperatures in the minus low-to-mid teens,” Rousel said.

It will hit -20 C before the end of the week, and that’s without the wind chill. Bundle up.
