An area of low pressure will strengthen off the northeast coast of the United States and will bring snow, rain, mixed precipitation, and strong winds to Atlantic Canada.


There is a special weather statement in effect for all of the province.


Across Newfoundland, a messy mix of ice pellets and freezing rain is anticipated on Thursday for southern sections of the province and on the Avalon.


Precipitation is expected to transition to rain for the Avalon and south coast. In Central, precipitation will start as snow and change to rain from about Grand Falls-Windsor eastward.


Across western Newfoundland, precipitation will likely remain as snow.


Snowfall amounts across western Newfoundland could reach 20 cm. Rainfall amounts should be minimal. Wind gusts to 100 km/h are possible.


Snow is also expected in Labrador. Snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm are expected combined with winds gusting to 60 km/h.
