Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula Southeast
11:04 AM NDT Wednesday 23 April 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Avalon Peninsula Southeast
A potentially significant period of freezing rain is possible.
A low pressure system south of Newfoundland will gradually move eastward to lie over the Southern Grand Banks overnight. Rain will develop over the Southern Avalon and Burin Peninsula this afternoon and persist into Thursday. As temperatures cool, northern portions of these regions can expect the rain to change to freezing rain.
For the Clarenville region and Bonavista Peninsula, periods of rain or drizzle early in the evening will give way to periods of freezing rain or ice pellets as temperatures cool to below freezing. As temperatures will hover near the freezing mark tonight, the occurrence of freezing rain will depend highly on minor temperature differences from one location to the next. Ice buildup will be more likely at higher elevations due to cooler temperatures.
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.
