TRURO - Colchester County, like most of the province, is under a flash freeze warning.

Environment Canada has issued the warning, as well as a rainfall warning, for Colchester County as temperatures are expected to drop on Thursday from above zero to "well below."

A low pressure system will continue to push a mix of precipitation through the province as it tracks northeastward. Rain will be heavy at times over most regions, however will gradually diminish today. Rainfall amounts between 30 and 50 millimetres are expected by late Thursday morning.

As the system passes, a cold northerly flow will cause a rapid drop in temperatures, which may cause water-covered surfaces such as roads and walkwasy to quickly turn to ice.

    More "Global Warming"..... ;-)

      Let me clear something up for you that most people who dismiss global warming don't seem to understand. It's not necessarily warmer weather that global warming is causing... it's extremes of weather... which can be either hot or cold. So just because we've had a particularly cold winter doesn't mean global warming is a myth. January was the 4th warmest January since 1980, globally speaking. People need to educate themselves... but they won't. They'll see a snowstorm and use that as their evidence against global warming... sad but true.
