Snowstorm Could be on the Way #nlwx

An unimpressive area of low pressure that is currently located in the western United States could deliver a blast of winter weather to Eastern Newfoundland later this week.

The low is expected to intensify as it moves over Atlantic Canada.

At this time, it looks like the low will bring some snow the Avalon and Burin Peninsula along with portions of central Newfoundland on Friday.

Heavy snow is possible in some areas.

Snowfall Forecast:

  • St. John's 30 to 50 cm

  • Carbonear 30 to 40 cm

  • Placentia 25 to 35 cm

  • Gander 20 to 40 cm

  • Marystown 30 to 40 cm

Mixed precipitation looks like it will remain offshore.

Areas receiving the heavy snow will also see strong winds. Gusts over 100 km/h are possible.

While there are still a couple of days to watch the track of the low, it could be significant amounts of snow that falls.

It is worth noting that even a slight shift in the storm's track could significantly alter snowfall amounts.
