TRURO - A rainfall warning is in effect for parts of Colchester County.

Park Street, shown on Monday remains closed Tuesday as Colchester County is placed under a rainfall warning.

Environment Canada has issued a warning for Colchester County - Cobequid Bay for Tuesday night.

It's expected the area will see 25 to 45 millimetres of rain on Tuesday as a trough of low pressure approaches the Maritimes.

Rain associated with the trough, which could track northeast from Cape Cod through the Bay of Fundy overnight, will begin over Southwestern Nova Scotia in the afternoon and spread across the province in the evening.

Robert Levine with Emergency Measures in Colchester County, isn't too concerned just yet with any flooding that may occur due to the forecasted rainfall.

"Right now, the rivers are down quite a bit," he said. "With the weather that we have had, and the way we received it, I don't think we will have too many problems."

He said there is still some ice in the rivers in the county, such as North and Salmon rivers, however it isn't as much as in the past.

"That's in part to the work that the province and county has done," he said.

Levine has a scheduled conference call Tuesday afternoon, however, to discuss the forecast and what problems could occur.

He also confirmed that Park Street, which closed to motorists overnight Saturday, is still closed.

"But I don't think (the rainfall) is going to cause any major headaches."
