Clarity or confusion changing to confusion

The following is the current Environment Canada forecast for Halifax:

Snow or rain changing to rain and ending this evening then cloudy periods. 30 percent chance of flurries overnight. Rainfall amount 5 to 10 mm except snowfall amount 2 cm inland. Wind southeast 40 km/h gusting to 70 becoming southwest 20 then increasing to 40 gusting to 70 late this evening. Temperature rising to plus 5 this evening then falling.

Is it just me, or does this make next to no sense? I am inclined to think that the person in charge of writing these things isn't too concerned about providing the public with a comprehensible forecast.
