“Another system is ready to approach Nova Scotia today, bringing rain, wind and mild temperatures,” he said.

“Given the recent snowfall, the rain combined with the rapid melting of snow could cause localized flooding, especially in areas where snow banks block or inhibit storm drainage.”

He also said strong southwest winds with gusts of up to 80 km / h or more are expected across much of the province on Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
