Alerts for: Terra Nova
12:06 PM NDT Friday 25 July 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:
- Terra Nova
Heavy downpours expected today and tonight.
A series of disturbances within a warm, tropical airmass lying across Newfoundland will continue bring very unsettled conditions to many areas of the island over the next 18 to 24 hours. The precipitation will be in the form of showers rather than widespread steady rain. Under this type of airmass it is not uncommon to receive brief and sudden heavy downpours producing high rainfall rates, possibly in excess of 20 millimetres per hour. This can result in local washouts and dangerous driving conditions due to heavy water build up on the roads.
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.
