Next storm eyes eastern Newfoundland


An area of low pressure will pass just east of Newfoundland on Tuesday, as a result, significant amounts of snow is possible for some areas.


Snow will start over the Avalon Peninsula, Burin Peninsula, Clarenville, and the Bonavista Peninsula overnight on Monday and for central Newfoundland by Tuesday morning. There is a risk of ice pellets over the Avalon and Burin Peninsulas.


Winds will be the strongest on Tuesday morning. On the Avalon Peninsula gusts between 80 and 100 km/h are possible. On the Burin Peninsula gusts will range from 80 to 90 km/h. In the Clarenville area gusts to 70 km/h are expected. Winds will gust to 60 km/h in Gander.


The snow will taper off from west to east on Tuesday evening, but it's not done yet...


On Tuesday night a secondary low will pass south of Newfoundland impacting much of the same area. Conditions will finally clear on Wednesday afternoon.


Snowfall forecast from Monday night to Wednesday:

  • St. John's 25-35 cm (plus ice pellets)

  • Trepassey 15-20 cm (plus ice pellets)

  • Carbonear 25-35 cm (plus ice pellets)

  • Placentia 20-30 cm (plus ice pellets)

  • Marystown 30-35 cm (plus ice pellets)
