Weekend winter wallop unlikely for Nova Scotia but Environment Canada keeping watchful eye

As the United States National Weather Service expands a blizzard watch for a storm that could “cripple” travel on the eastern seaboard this weekend, Environment Canada says its impact on Nova Scotia is still too early to predict with certainty.

“We are still on the fence right now in terms of what to expect, ” Environment Canada meteorologist Tracey Talbot said late Thursday.

Talbot said models are trending towards the storm remaining off the Atlantic coast. If the southerly tracking trend continues, she’d expect little more than significant cloud cover, some wind along the coast, and maybe just a “dusting” of snow.

“If it tracks significantly further north it could be significant (snow), but as of right now we might not even get a dusting from it with this current track, ” she said.

The storm is still several days away, but Talbot said Environment Canada is closely monitoring its track. She expects a much clearer picture to emerge by Saturday morning and advises people to keep an eye on local forecasts.
