Brace yourselves Halifax; more winter is coming.
 
As golfers take to the greens and the ice on the Emera Oval melts, winter winds are blowing yet another disturbance into our region later this week, according to Environment Canada.
 
In a special weather statement issued late Tuesday afternoon, Environment Canada called for “significant snowfall as well as strong easterly winds Friday night and Saturday."
 
There is a chance the forecasted low-pressure system approaching from the south could turn to rain for parts of the province.
 
Environment Canada is advising people to monitor future forecasts as the storm system moves closer to the province.
