Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Burin Peninsula

A wintry mix of precipitation and strong winds for Tuesday.

A developing low pressure system over the Central United States will track northeastward towards Newfoundland late Monday. Precipitation initially in the form of snow, is expected to reach Southwestern Newfoundland Monday night before spreading across the rest of the island Tuesday morning. Most areas are forecast to see a transition to rain by Tuesday afternoon. A period of freezing rain or ice pellets will be possible in many areas as the precipitation transitions to rain. Widespread strong winds will also be a concern with this system.

Tides are also forecast to be high on Tuesday during the passage of this storm. High tides combined with large waves and pounding surf will create the threat for high water levels around portions of the Southwest Coast.

There is still uncertainty as to the exact track of the low. The public is advised to monitor future forecasts as warnings may be required.

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