The snowfall amounts are expected to range between 15-25 centimetres, and as much as 35 in some areas, according to Environment Canada. Winds will gust between 80-100 kilometres per hour.
Stormy conditions are expected to continue Tuesday night into Wednesday, Environment Canada said, adding additional significant snowfall amounts are likely. Locations to be impacted are uncertain at this time and further weather updates will add details. Environment Canada suggests people postpone non-essential travel while the storm is on, as visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow.
Meanwhile, as a result of the blizzard hitting Nova Scotia, some flights to Halifax have been affected and travellers should check their status before heading to the airport.
