Special weather statement in effect for:
- St. John's and vicinity
Rain, snow and strong winds expected on Thursday.
A developing low pressure system over the Central United States will intensify as it crosses the Maritimes Thursday morning to lie over the Gulf of St. Lawrence by Thursday evening. Snow will develop ahead of this system early on Thursday and will change through freezing rain to rain over most regions through the day. Significant rainfall amounts are expected with this system especially over the South Coast, which will likely cause considerable snow melt and could lead to local flooding.
Over much of the Northern Peninsula, temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for most of the day on Thursday. Precipitation is expected to remain as snow or freezing rain before eventually changing to rain by Thursday night.
Environment Canada will continue to monitor the development of this system, providing updates as new information becomes available.
The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
