Over Northeastern Newfoundland precipitation will intensify tonight, changing to snow over higher terrain areas but remaining as rain along the coast. The highest snowfall accumulations are expected to reach between 20 and 35 centimetres in the higher terrain areas between Gander and port rexton by Sunday morning. Coastal sections of this same area can expect to see up to 40 millimetres of rainfall. The possibility exists for these areas to see local higher amounts of both snow or rain, therefore, the public is advised to monitor upcoming forecasts for changes or expanded warnings.
