Environment Canada has issued warnings across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick for a messy system that will bring rain, wind and snow to the region.
Most of Nova Scotia, with the exception of Cape Breton Island, is subject to rainfall warnings. The mainland of the province can expect 25 to 50 millimeters of rain Thursday.
There could be up to 70 millimeters in Halifax and the southwest of the province.
Environment Canada said the rain is expected to start in southwestern Nova Scotia early Thursday morning and reach eastern mainland Nova Scotia by noon. The rain is expected to turn to showers in the evening.
The meteorological agency said a “brief spell of snow” is expected over northern areas before turning to rain.

The rain, sometimes abundant, will be accompanied by “very strong winds from the south blowing at 90 or 100 km / h on exposed areas”. Wind warnings have been issued for all of Nova Scotia, including Cape Breton.
Environment Canada has also issued snow and rain warnings for much of New Brunswick.
In northern and parts of central New Brunswick, snowfalls totaling 20 to 30 centimeters are expected from Wednesday evening through late Thursday.
“The occasional heavy snow will change to rain over most parts of central and northern New Brunswick on Thursday afternoon before changing to showers and scattered showers later in the afternoon or evening,” said Environment Canada.

Rainfall warnings have also been issued for southwestern New Brunswick and areas along the Fundy coast. Environment Canada said the snow will start Wednesday evening before turning to rain, at times heavy, Thursday morning.
The rain is expected to ease to scattered showers on Thursday evening before ending, he said.
About 30 millimeters are expected, but 40 to 50 millimeters are possible for locations along the Bay of Fundy coast.
