Snow, freezing rain expected Monday for southwestern Nova Scotia

A low-pressure system approaching Nova Scotia from the west will bring snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain along parts of the coast Monday night. 

Environment Canada released a special weather statement Sunday afternoon for Digby, Lunenburg, Queens, Shelburne  and Yarmouth counties.

The national forecaster said the special weather statement may be upgraded to a freezing rain warning for the southwestern region, depending on how the system pans out.

"The public is advised to monitor updated forecasts in the event a freezing rain warning may be issued," the statement said.
