BLOG REPLAY: Storm news across Nova Scotia Jan. 13

Snow blanketed Oxford Street in Halifax and much of the rest of the province Wednesday. (THE CHRONICLE HERALD)Wet snow and strong gusts hit the East Coast today as a low pressure system moved across the region, creating power outages, school closures and travel delays.

Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning in most regions of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia by early morning, while Newfoundland and Labrador was expecting snow later in the day.

The forecaster was calling for accumulations of 15 to 25 centimetres of snow and winds gusting between 50 to 70 kilometres per hour.


The agency said the rapid accumulation of snow could make winter travel difficult in some locations.

A number of early morning Air Canada flights were cancelled due to the weather, and the Halifax Stanfield International Airport was advising passengers to check with airlines for potential delays.

Marine Atlantic ferry crossings between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador are delayed until Thursday, and there is a wind warning advisory for the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island.

Schools throughout the Maritimes were announcing closures, while colleges and universities announced delays in classes until later in the day.
