Wet Weekend Expected for NL as Another Low Pushes Through
A disorganized low will bring more unsettled weather to Newfoundland and Labrador this weekend.
Beginning on Friday afternoon snow will spread into western Labrador and begin tracking east. The snow will begin to wind down on Saturday as the low moves offshore. On the backside of the low, some sea-effect snow is possible for coastal areas. Along the coast, snowfall amounts may exceed 20 cm. There will be wind gusts of 100 km/h also.
Newfoundland will see rain or a rain-snow mix move onto the south coast on Friday night. Rain will track across the Island on Saturday. Some snow is most likely on the west coast and portions of central. Conditions clear on Saturday night.
From this next incoming low, 20 to 40 mm of rain is expected in southwestern Newfoundland. While this amount is not significant, recent flooding in the area already has the ground saturated so some more flooding is possible.
