Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula Southeast
5:30 AM NST Saturday 08 March 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Avalon Peninsula Southeast
5 to 10 centimetres of snow tonight.
A low pressure system east of Cape Hatteras is expected to track northeastward along the Eastern Seaboard today before passing southeast of the Avalon Peninsula tonight. Snow associated with this system is expected to begin over the eastern portions of Newfoundland this evening and persist overnight before tapering off early Sunday. Total snowfall accumulations over the Avalon are forecast to range from 5 centimetres or less over western sections to slightly more than 10 centimetres near Cape Race. Heavier snowfall is forecast to remain offshore. However, should the low track closer to the Avalon Peninsula, significantly higher snowfall accumulations will result.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
