Blizzard watch

Winter is coming back and bringing a blizzard with it.

Environment Canada is calling for periods of snow starting tonight and high winds and heavy snow continuing through the day Wednesday.

Significant snowfall and high winds causing blowing snow will add up to near-zero visibility – in other words, a blizzard. (More details below)

The Digby Courier will be displaying a province-wide liveblog with storm information, news and forecasts starting this afternoon.

You can also follow us on Twitter @DigbyNews for strictly local information. If you’re tweeting something we can use for the provincial storm liveblog, please use the hashtag #stormTC .

If it’s information I need for the Digby reports please add the hashtag #Ddot.

And of course, our Facebook group will also be updated as time allows.

We are keeping a cancellations list on the Facebook group and will tweet them as we get them.

They are calling for 5 to 10 centimetres of snow beginning this evening and winds out of the northeast at 30 km/h gusting to 50 causing local blowing snow overnight.

The temperature today will stay steady near minus 9.

Tomorrow the storm will intensify dumping another 15 centimetres of snow at times heavy. The winds will swing to the north and increase to 40 km/h gusting to 60 becoming northwest 40 gusting to 60 late in the afternoon.

High tides in Digby are after 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. tomorrow.
