Significant storm to impact Newfoundland today to Sunday


A prolonged severe weather event is set to unfold across Newfoundland from Thursday afternoon to Sunday. The storm will deliver snow, rain, mixed precipitation, and strong winds to the already storm-battered Island.


A mix of rain and snow is expected to begin Thursday afternoon across the west coast of Newfoundland. The precipitation will change to rain on Thursday night. By Friday morning precipitation will change to snow.


For central and eastern Newfoundland rain will begin on Thursday night.


On Friday morning snow will spread across central Newfoundland. The Avalon Peninsula, Burin Peninsula, and the Bonavista Peninsula will see rain change to freezing rain and/or ice pellets. The freezing rain and ice pellets will drift northward and eventually the snow in central Newfoundland will change to a mix of freezing rain and/or ice pellets.


By Sunday morning the low will move out and all areas will see another quick shot of snow.


Marine Atlantic has cancelled crossings for Thursday.


This storm has the potential to cause dangerous driving conditions, travel delays, power outages and school closures.
