A weather pattern is currently setting up which will bring large amounts of tropical moisture to Nova Scotia over the next couple of days.

Although rain is not expected to be continuously heavy, there will be periods of very heavy rain which could overwhelm some drainage systems and result in flash flooding. The localized nature of these extreme rainfall rates makes it impossible to pinpoint exactly where this will occur but there is a slightly higher risk in the St. Margarets Bay/western HRM area, middle Eastern Shore and parts of Cape Breton. Generally speaking, total amounts in these areas would be in the 40 to 80 mm range.

Residents should limit travel if possible and be prepared for potential areas of flooding.
