Late Wednesday through Thursday.
The heaviest snow will reside around NE regions of Newfoundland where around, or slightly above 30cm, is possible. Undulating drier air and waves of moist air for N and NE regions of Newfoundland will allow for appreciable snowfall amounts, although somewhat localized on the upper-end of the aforementioned range due to the drier air. Elsewhere, 10-20cm is possible with slightly lesser amounts for Eastern regions of the province.
Localized freezing rain is possible south of Glovertown and SW of Eastport. Up to 7-8mm of accretion is not out-of-the-question, however, impact will be extremely localized; a mixed bag of precipitation – including rain showers – will melt much of the ice, nonetheless.
Heavy rain will inundate much of the Avalon Peninsula and the Southern Newfoundland shoreline and somewhat lesser, although still prevalent, near regions such as: Carbonear, Clarenville and Bonavista.
Wet snow for this entire region cannot be ruled out.
This is expected to be a reasonably significant system given the time of year – we know this it not the news Newfoundlanders want to hear!
Please adjust your driving habits accordingly.
