Winter storm watch in effect for:

  • Avalon Peninsula Southeast

Snowfall accumulations possibly reaching 15 centimetres are expected along parts of the south coast beginning Wednesday afternoon. There is also the possibility of widespread blowing snow as strong winds will accompany the snow. Temperatures are expected to rise to near or above zero in the southeast which could limit the severity of the blowing snow.

Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight. For information on emergency plans and kits go to http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/
