Two systems to impact Newfoundland and Labrador this week


There will be two systems impacting the province this week.


#1 Monday night to Tuesday night


The same low that is impacting Ontario and Quebec will bring snow to Labrador on Monday night and the snow will change to rain over southeastern Labrador. There is a risk of freezing rain during the transition. 15 to 30 cm of snow is possible.


On Monday night the low will bring rain to Newfoundland. The rain will change to snow along the west coast on Tuesday night. Rainfall amounts will range from 5 to 10 mm except for the south coast where 40 to 50 mm is possible. The Long Range Mountains could see 15 cm of snow.


Strong winds are expected for the province.

 

#2 Thursday to Friday


This system will be a Newfoundland story. It appears as though all areas will see snow to start. The Avalon Peninsula, Burin Peninsula, through Clarenville and the Bonavista Peninsula will likely transition to rain. There is the potential for ice pellets.


It is too early to discuss specific precipitation amounts because the temperature on the Avalon will be near the freezing mark so it could bring significant rain or snow.


Strong winds are expected across the Island.
