An area of low pressure presently south of Nova Scotia will swing across the Grand Banks today and tonight.

Any impacts to land will be minimal.

We will see some snow across Nova Scotia throughout the day. Generally about 2 to 5 cm is expected, however for places such as Shag Harbour to Shelburne could end up with more snowfall, in these areas amounts of 15 cm is possible.

The system is expected to pass south of Newfoundland, we cannot rule out a stray flurry along the south coast, but no accumulation is expected.

Snow or rain will begin on Sunday afternoon across the Southwestern Grand Banks with wave heights of 3 to 5 metres. On Sunday evenings winds will gust to 45 knots (83 km/h).
