TRURO - Just days after the first major snowfall of the season, Mother Nature is calling for more.

Mother Nature continues to play tricks on Nova Scotia, including Truro, with flurries and blowing snow on Monday.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for both Colchester County - Cobequid Bay, and Colchester County North thanks to a low pressure system developing near Long Island Tuesday afternoon.

The weather forecast is calling for 15 to 20 centimetres of snow for Colchester areas from Tuesday night to Wednesday.

Snow is expected to begin over Southwestern Nova Scotia late Tuesday evening before spreading across the mainland overnight. It will hit Cape Breton early Wednesday morning.

Snowfall totals of up to 20 centimetres are expected, with the highest amounts estimated for Colchester and Cumberland counties. Precipitation will continue until Wednesday evening, gradually ending from west to east.

Snowfall amounts are expected to be less along the Atlantic coast due to the precipitation change-over from snow to rain.
