NOVA SCOTIA - Get ready for another storm.

Environment Canada has issued a winter storm warning for Nova Scotia.

This latest bout of blizzard-like conditions is expected to blanket the province with another 30 cm of snow between Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon.

“Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays,” reads a weather alert issued by Environment Canada Feb. 15.

The forecast is also predicting that the low-pressure system will bring gusty northeast winds in the 80 km/h range with the heavy snow.

This impending storm is slated to arrive only two days after a Feb. 13 blizzard dumped 61 cm of snow in Greenwood, setting a new daily snowfall record for that date.
