Significant snowfall accumulations are likely over southwestern newfoundland.

A low pressure system is expected to track northeastward across eastern Newfoundland late in the day on Thursday. Snow ahead of this system will spread into Newfoundland Wednesday night. Upwards of 15 cm of snow are forecast by the end of the day Thursday.

Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Poor weather conditions may contribute to transportation delays. Public Safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid kit and a flashlight.
