Snow, freezing rain, rain and strong winds expected on Thursday.
Snow is forecast to develop across Central and Western Newfoundland overnight as a low pressure system approaches the Maritimes from the United States. The snow will then change through freezing rain to rain on Thursday as the low tracks into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Generally 10 to 20 millimetres of rainfall is anticipated along with strong southerly winds gusting up to 80 km/h.
The combination of rain, wind, and mild temperatures may lead to significant snowmelt creating the potential for local flooding. Conditions are expected to improve Thursday night as the low moves away.
