TRURO – Colchester County residents are being warned that Wednesday’s blizzard could be a doozy.

Tracey Talbot, an Environment Canada meteorologist based out of Dartmouth, told the Truro Daily News on Tuesday that this area could see up to 35 cms of snow by the end of the winter storm that was expected to begin overnight Tuesday.

“It will be at its worst late to mid-Wednesday” and begin to settle down Wednesday night.

What will make driving conditions dangerous, Talbot said, will be the blowing snow, due to wind that could gust as high as 70 km/hr. by late Wednesday morning.

“There will be significant reduced visibility,” said Talbot.

Temperatures should range between a high of -5 and low of -11.

As far as short and long-term forecasts, Talbot warns

“it’s still winter. We are not at the end of (storms) yet.”
