Snow squalls prompting travel advisories in Newfoundland

Snow squalls are impacting several areas of Newfoundland resulting in dangerous driving conditions in many areas.

Travel is not recommended across parts of the west coast and there is poor visibility in many areas.

The RCMP advises that road conditions are hazardous on the TCH from Deer Lake to Corner Brook and surrounding areas of the North and South Shore, with high winds, whiteouts and zero visibility.

Trinity Conception RCMP is warning motorists of extremely icy conditions and snow squalls on the Veteran’s Memorial Highway.

The Avalon Peninsula, Connaigre, and Burin Peninsula will see snowfall amounts of 20 to 30 cm and winds will gust to 80 km/h.

Western Newfoundland will see the most snow with 30 to 50 cm expected and winds gusting from 80 to 110 km/h.

Along the north coast, snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 cm is expected and winds will gust between 80 and 110 km/h.

Snowfall amounts can vary widely from one place to the next with snow squalls and not all areas may see significant amounts of snow.

Visibility in snow squalls will be suddenly reduced.

Conditions will improve on Friday evening.
