Up to 45 cm of snow is expected for the Avalon, with 15 to 30 cm expected elsewhere in the warning areas. There will also be wind gusts near 100 km/h, along the immediate areas of the coast, winds may reach 120 km/h.

Here is where you can check for school closures.

For the southeastern Avalon, snow may change to ice pellets or even a rain-snow mix. As a result, lesser snowfall amounts are expected in those areas.

Waves of 6 metres are expected along the coast of the Northern Avalon and St. John's on Monday morning. Coastal flooding is possible.
