Winter storm watches issued for eastern Newfoundland

There is a winter storm watch in effect for the Burin, Bonavista and Avalon Peninsulas, Clarenville and vicinity.

Snow is expected to begin Friday morning and become heavy at times by Friday afternoon.

Strong northeasterly winds in conjunction with the fresh snowfall will result in poor visibility in blowing snow, especially Friday night. Conditions will improve on Saturday morning.

Total snowfall amounts of 15 to 25 cm, with higher amounts possible. Maximum wind gusts northerly from 60 to 80 km/h is also expected.

Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations.
