Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula North


3:47 PM NST Friday 09 December 2016
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Avalon Peninsula North

Snow squalls are expected to develop. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

A cold westerly flow has made conditions favourable for onshore flurries and embedded snow squalls. While the flurries will only produce a couple of centimetres of accumulation over most areas tonight, localized amounts of 10 cm or more are possible under the more intense bands of snow.

The squalls are expected to weaken by morning.

Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #NLwx.
