7 DAY FORECAST, MAINLAND N.S.
CINDY SAYS: The low pressure system that was being held back by a ridge across Newfoundland and Labrador has re-intensified and after a slow crawl eastward, will stall just south of Cape Breton Island Thursday morning. The powerful fall storm will serve up wind gusts to 80 km/h from the N-NE, and a very messy rain/snow mix. The NW quadrant of the low is colder and will experience significant snowfall. Onshore winds will add to the snow totals that could be as high as 15 cm in some places by Friday morning. The weekend will get off to a quiet start. The next weather system – again a rain/snow mix, will push up from the SW Sunday afternoon.
