Messy Weekend Ahead for NL


A developing area of low pressure will bring unsettled weather to Newfoundland and Labrador this weekend.


The system is expected to bring snow to most of Labrador. A rain-snow mix is expected south of the TLH. Although sporadic, snow will linger across Labrador through the weekend.


On Friday afternoon a quick shot of rain is expected across Newfoundland. Behind the low, it will cool back down in Newfoundland and some wrap-around snow is possible along the west coast on Saturday night and Sunday.


Rainfall amounts will be negligible for most of the province. The heaviest rain will fall along the west coast and along the Trans-Labrador Highway where 5 to 10 mm is expected. This rain combined with warmer temperatures could lead to some snowmelt and as a result, some localized flooding may occur.


Any standing water will freeze when temperatures fall.


Areas of northern Labrador could end up seeing significant amounts of snow. In some areas over 20 cm is possible.
