Environment Canada is predicting another dumping of winter weather for the maritimes this week.

In a statement issued by Environment Canada on Sunday, the agency stated the possibility of a possible “major winter storm” for Atlantic Canada, bringing “significant snowfall, rain or freezing rain, very strong northeasterly winds, and higher than normal water levels.”

This comes just days after a snowstorm brought snow, rain and wind to Nova Scotia, knocking out power for over 10,000 people.

In Environment Canada’s statement, officials did note that there is still the possibility for changes to the storm’s track, which could “significantly change precipitation type and duration, especially along the Atlantic coast and northeastern regions including Cape Breton.”

As usual, citizens are also being advised to monitor their local forecasts, and warnings issued by Environment Canada as the storm draws nearer.
