Nova Scotia Weather

Nova Scotia, a peninsula surrounded by water - the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Atlantic ocean and the Bay of Fundy is subject to frequent changes in the weather.

Nova Scotia is the warmest of the Canadian provinces and is not subject to extreme fluctuations in temperatures.

Spring is generally rainy and quite foggy; summers are warm and balmy, fall brings warm days and cool nights and winters are cold and wet.

The coastal areas receive little snow in the winter, but moving inland, the annual snowfall increases. The elevated areas receive the most snow and have the longest winter season.

Most people think fall is the best season of the year.
