Snebygevagt issued for some counties in NS

Environment Canada has issued a snowstorm alarm in Antigonish, Inverness, Pictou and Victoria counties on Saturday 20 November.

Between 15 and 25 cm of snow can fall, with winds between 40 and 60 km in Pictou, Antigonish, Inverness and Victoria counties.

“Snowstorm clocks are issued when conditions are favorable for the formation of snow bands that can produce intense accumulation of snow or almost zero visibility,” the warning reads.

The forecast suggests that showers will develop Friday night over eastern Nova Scotia and may become heavier in the morning.

The warning says similar conditions could also spread across western and northern Cape Breton in the morning.

Drivers may encounter sudden whiteout conditions on the roads as the wind picks up.

“Travel can be dangerous due to sudden changes in the weather,” Environment Canada said in its alarm.
