The RCMP say other than a couple of minor incidents, there have been no serious reports of accidents throughout the Colchester County area.

Roads are passable but tricky and visibility is very limited in some areas as winds that are expected to reach 50 kph today are moving the white stuff around.

The Cobequid Pass on Highway 104 remains open but is passable with caution an RCMP spokesperson reports.
