A special weather statement remains in effect for Nova Scotia.

Meteorologist Ian Hubbard said Halifax will see flurries on and off through Monday, but conditions could get messy overnight.

"That special weather statement is talking about a little bit of freezing rain that we're expecting to form late this evening or after midnight and persist for a couple hours," he explained.

He said there's a greater risk of freezing rain further inland, away from the coast.

The temperature should rise above freezing Tuesday morning, switching the freezing rain to rain. Hubbard is hopeful the warmer air will arrive by the height of the morning commute.

"But there's still a little risk of freezing rain in those early morning hours before dawn," he said.

Hubbard doesn't expect much in the way of accumulation from the flurries and says Halifax should get 10 to 20 mm of rain Tuesday.
