Snowy Christmas Week Ahead #nlwx


A weather system will move across Newfoundland and Labrador giving most of us a white Christmas.

On Monday night snow will spread across southern Labrador and spread across Newfoundland.

The heaviest snow is expected over the Avalon and coastal areas.

Snowfall forecast:

  • St. John's: 20 to 30 cm

  • Marystown: 10 to 15 cm

  • Gander: 15 to 25 cm

  • Port aux Basques: 10 to 15 cm

  • Corner Brook: 10 to 15

  • St. Anthony: 2 to 4 cm

  • Happy Valley-Goose Bay: 3 to 5 cm

  • Labrador City: 5 cm

The system will be accompanied by strong winds also with gusts to 90 km/h expected over some exposed coastal areas of Newfoundland and gusts to 60 km/h inland.

Another, and likely more powerful, snow event could be on the horizon beginning on Thursday and continuing into Friday. Details on that system are forthcoming.
