Severe thunderstorm watch in effect
Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms that may be capable of producing heavy rain.
A cluster of thunderstorms continue to slowly move to the east-southeast across central Lunenburg, Kings and Hants counties. Heavy rain, frequent lightning and small hail are possible under these cells.
Heavy downpours can cause flash floods and water pooling on roads. Lightning kills and injures Canadians every year. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors!
Severe thunderstorm watches are issued when atmospheric conditions are favourable for the development of thunderstorms that could produce one or more of the following: large hail, damaging winds, torrential rainfall.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NSstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NSStorm.
