Stormy Couple of Days Ahead for the Province #nlwx

A large area of low pressure that is currently south of the Maritimes will bring nasty weather to a large swath of Atlantic Canada over the course of the next couple of days.

This low is composed of heavy rain, gusty winds, storm surge, and yes even some snow.

Tonight through Friday evening, the heaviest rain will fall along the south coast. Rainfall amounts ranging from 30 to 50 mm are possible. The remainder of the island portion of the province will see rainfall amounts of only 5 to 10 mm, Labrador could see 15-25 mm in eastern sections.

Rain will mix with, and then change to, snow across western Labrador. Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are expected, some of which will melt on contact.

Wind gusts to 100 km/h are possible along the west coast of Newfoundland. Wreckhouse winds may reach gusts of 140 km/h.
