Nova Scotia

Weather

The ocean surrounding Nova Scotia tends to keep the weather moderate, with cooler temperatures nearer the coast than inland. Summer and autumn are usually sunny, although the eastern areas and Cape Breton Island are often windy. The entire southern coast from Shelburne to Canso is often wrapped in a morning fog, which may take until noon or later to burn off. Winters can be very snowy but, again, the ocean keeps temperatures from plunging.
