Low to Bring Snow, Rain, and wind to Newfoundland #nlwx


A poorly organized area of low pressure currently over Florida will bring stormy weather to parts of Newfoundland beginning on Tuesday night and continuing through Wednesday night.


The system is expected to bring snow, rain, mixed precipitation, and strong winds.


For the Avalon and Burin Peninsula, it looks like precipitation will largely be in the form of rain. Clarenville through to Terra Nova could see rain with the risk of freezing rain and ice pellets. For the remainder of the Island, snow is expected.


The Canadian model tends to be more aggressive with precipitation amounts. The numbers below are subject to change.
