Weather & Climate | Nature pure …
Sun, rain, snow, storm …
Nova Scotia lies in the mid-temperate zone and,
although the province is almost surrounded by water, the climate is closer to continental rather than maritime. The temperature extremes of the continental climate are moderated by the ocean.
Nova Scotia has frequent coastal fog and marked changeability of weather from day to day. The main factors influencing Nova Scotia’s climate are:
The effects of the westerly winds
The interaction between three main air masses which converge on the east coast
Nova Scotia’s location on the routes of the major eastward-moving storms
The modifying influence of the sea.
Described on the provincial vehicle-licence plate as Canada’s Ocean Playground, the sea is a major influence on Nova Scotia’s climate. Nova Scotia’s cold winters and warm summers are modified and generally moderated by ocean influences. The province is surrounded by four major bodies of water, the Gulf of Saint Lawrence to the north, the Bay of Fundy to the west, the Gulf of Maine to the southwest, and Atlantic Ocean to the southeast.
The annual temperatures are:
Spring from 1 °C (34 °F) to 17 °C (63 °F)
Summer from 14 °C (57 °F) to 28 °C (82 °F)
Autumn about 5 °C (41 °F) to 20 °C (68 °F)
Winter about ?9 °C (16 °F) to 0 °C (32 °F)
Due to the ocean’s moderating effect, Nova Scotia, on average, is the warmest of the provinces in Canada, owing primarily to the milder winter temperatures experienced in Nova Scotia compared to the rest of Canada.
