Messy Weekend Ahead #nlwx

The same storm that is set to impact Ontario and Quebec will have an impact on Atlantic Canada this weekend.

Snow moves on to the west coast of Newfoundland on Saturday morning and will spread to central Newfoundland.

The snow will change to ice pellets or freezing rain and then rain.

Freezing rain and rain are expected on the Avalon and south coast.

Heavy snow is possible on the Northern Peninsula and west coast where 20 to 30 centimetres could accumulate, much lesser amounts are expected elsewhere.

10 to 15 mm of rain is expected along the south coast.

Marine Atlantic departures could be impacted on Friday and Saturday.
