Statements

Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Bonavista North

A very intense low pressure system will approach from the south on Saturday and will pass just east of the Avalon Peninsula Saturday evening.

Light snow will develop early Saturday afternoon and persist into Saturday night. At this time, total snowfall amounts approaching 5 cm are expected by late afternoon on Saturday with further amounts expected Saturday night.

This system will also be accompanied by very strong northerly winds during the event. The strongest winds are expected Saturday night as the low passes. These winds will combine with the fresh snowfall to cause reduced visibilities in blowing snow Saturday night, especially over exposed areas.

Conditions are expected to improve Sunday morning.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.weathernlwo.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
