Warming and rainfall across northern Nova Scotia

(Posted:04/07/2017)

NS: Mild temperatures and rain expected today. Rainfall warnings are in effect for the Atlantic coastal regions of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island. Elsewhere rainfall amounts are expected to remain below warning criteria but there is still a risk of localized flooding due to the combination of the rain and significant snowmelt where snow cover still exists and where the ground remains frozen. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.
