This is how Shelburne streets looked last January and how they could look again on Sunday, if the forecasts for a major winter storm are right.

Days before an expected storm, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the weekend.

A low pressure system will bring snow to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton on Sunday. How much is too early to say but the statement says there is potential for “significant” snow, strong winds and blowing snow for much of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.

Environment Canada says it will continue to monitor the development of the

storm and will provide updates as new information becomes available.

Those planning travel or other weather-sensitive activities for

Sunday are being advised to keep an eye on future forecasts for more information

and any warnings that may be issued.
