Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Terra Nova

Rain, snow, and strong winds this weekend.

Forecast guidance continues to indicate that an area of low pressure will form off the Carolinas and track across Western Newfoundland sometime Monday or Monday night. While there remains considerable uncertainty with respect to the low's track and intensity, there is much better consensus with a leading system approaching late Saturday into Sunday.

This leading system will bring mainly rain to Southern and Eastern Newfoundland starting on Saturday and snow or ice pellets changing to rain elsewhere Saturday night into Sunday. Therefore, parts of central, western, and Northern Newfoundland should prepare for accumulating snow, especially over higher elevations.

Rain will continue over most of the island on Sunday into Monday as the main low approaches, with potentially more snow over the Great Northern Peninsula on Sunday.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor this system and provide additional information as it becomes available.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at WWW.WEATHER.GC.CA.
