Messy week ahead for Newfoundland

An area of low pressure currently off the northeast coast of the United States will bring snow, rain, and strong winds to Newfoundland beginning on Tuesday and continuing until Friday for some areas, making for a very unsettled week.

Snow will begin overnight along the southwest coast. On Tuesday most areas will see rain with the rain gradually moving north over the day reaching places such as Gander and St. John's by Tuesday night.

For eastern, northeastern and central Newfoundland, rain will be the primary concern with 40 to 60 mm expected with a potential maximum near 90 mm over parts of the Avalon Peninsula. Flooding is possible.

Rainfall amounts will be less in central Newfoundland where rain may transition to snow on Thursday.

Across the west coast, rain and snow is expected. Corner Brook and surrounding areas could see about 10 mm of rain and 10 cm of snow.

Strong winds are expected along the south and west coast on Tuesday and will continue through Tuesday night. Gusts to 140 km/h are expected in the Wreckhouse area and gusts from 80 to 110 km/h for areas under the wind warning.

There remains some uncertainty regarding precipitation types and amounts. Keep checking back for updates.
