An area of low pressure will track over the Avalon over the course of today and tomorrow.
We are already seeing light snow over parts of the Avalon which will only intensify as we head through the day.
Central and western Newfoundland will see snow from the system. On the Burin and Avalon Peninsula, a mix of rain, snow and ice pellets are expected.
It is very important to note that elevation will play a large role in how much snow will fall. Higher elevations will see more snow. Areas right next to the water will see much less snow.
There is a snowfall warning in effect for:
Avalon Peninsula North
Clarenville and vicinity
St. John's and vicinity
In the above-listed areas, snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 centimetres are expected. Elsewhere across Newfoundland, snowfall amount of 5 to 15 centimetres is expected. On the Avalon, there will also be wind gusts to about 60 km/h which will cause reduced visibility and blowing snow.
Snowfall forecast for Saturday and Sunday:
St. John's 20-25 cm
Marystown 10-15 cm
Gander 10-15 cm
Corner Brook 5 cm
