  • Avalon Peninsula Southeast

Snowfall expected Saturday.

A low pressure system expected to form south of Nova Scotia on Friday will spread snow over Eastern Newfoundland on Saturday; snowfall warnings may be required. Over the Avalon Peninsula snow is expected to change through ice pellets or freezing rain to rain for most areas Saturday afternoon before changing back to snow Saturday night.

Additionally, strong northerly winds will develop over eastern parts of the island overnight Saturday night and persist into Sunday morning. As a result reduced visibilities in blowing snow over exposed areas can be expected.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
