There’s a weather warning for the Maritimes, and I can tell from the snowshovels that appear to be driving around the block (and the wind gusts):
Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 20 centimetres are forecast for many areas before the snow changes through ice pellets or freezing rain then to showers. Rainfall amounts could reach 5 millimetres over southwestern regions. Strong southeasterly winds will develop ahead of this system with wind gusts of 80 km/h giving reduced visibilities in blowing snow..Higher gusts of 90 km/hour are expected over southwestern Nova Scotia and up to 120 km/h over the Cape Breton Highlands.
Notice that the weather is gradually ‘getting warmer’ over the course of the night, where at the end (and hopefully) the snow will change into rain. The freezing rain is the tacky part. Might be pretty.
