An early spring snow storm covered much of Halifax Friday morning causing school closures and traffic issues.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport saw around 13 centimetres while metro Halifax saw close to 5 centimetres.

Both the Halifax Regional School Board (HSRB) and the Strait Regional School Board cancelled classes because of conditions.

“We didn’t believe that we could operate safely to get students to school in the morning, and we also knew that there was going to be some tricky weather late in the day as well,” said Doug Hadley, a spokesperson for the HSRB.

“We’ve had cancellations as late as April 1, but this is a few weeks later, and I’ve never seen a cancellation this late in the school year.”

Halifax Regional Municipality says snow clearing crews are out clearing main roads and bus routes.

At Coast Tire and Auto Service, assistant manager Myril Wells said about 200 winter tires would be switched Friday.

“The snow we have or that we get, it’ll be short-lived, and it’ll be gone within a day so it’s really not a problem,” he said.

The system is expected to pass through the region but not before it changes to rain.
