Provincial Storm Update and Road Report #nlwx #nltraffic


The storm has come to an end across most of Newfoundland. There is still some snow happening across the west coast and in Labrador. That's where our focus will be today.

Across western Newfoundland, snow and gusty winds will continue throughout the day. Flurries are expected to continue through Tuesday. Another 10 to 15 cm of snow is likely today.

Along coastal Labrador, 15 to 20 cm of snow and blowing snow is expected.

Several schools are either closed all day, closed for the morning, or have a delayed opening. Details here. Academy Canada (Corner Brook Campus) will have a 2-hr delayed opening.
