Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Burin Peninsula

Significant winter weather possible on Thursday.

A low pressure system currently developing south of Cape Cod is forecast to track northeastward and cross Newfoundland late in the day on Thursday.

At this time total snowfall accumulations are expected to be in the 10 to 15 centimeter range over the Great Northern Peninsula, however a slight northwestward shift in the track of the low would result in higher amounts.

For all remaining regions, snow is expected to change to a mixture of ice pellets and freezing rain before eventually changing to rain on Thursday afternoon. Generally 5 to 10 centimetres of snow is expected with 10 to 25 millimetres of rain, however a slight southeastward shift in the track could result higher snowfall amounts.

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.
