A weather system is set to move through Atlantic Canada this weekend and will end up disrupting weekend plans.

On Saturday night through Sunday it will be Newfoundland's turn to get the severe weather with rain and wind expected. 30 to 50 mm of rain is expected along the southwest and west coasts of the Island. 10 to 20 mm is expected for central and the Avalon Peninsula. Wind gusts to 80 km/h are possible across southern Newfoundland and the Avalon Peninsula. Winds will be higher in the Wreckhouse area.

Saturday night into Monday morning Labrador will receive strong winds accompanied by significant amounts of snow and/or rain. Highest rainfall amounts are possible for southeastern Labrador, while significant snow is likely for central Labrador and more northern coastal areas. Across southeastern Labrador, rainfall amounts of 15 to 25 mm are expected. For central Labrador and more northern coastal areas, some locations could pick up over 30 cm of snow.

This storm will likely have significant impacts on travel.
