10:35 PM NDT Wednesday 26 April 2017
Freezing rain warning in effect for:

  • Gros Morne

Significant ice build-up due to freezing rain is expected or occurring.

A very long duration and intense period of freezing rain is forecast to begin overnight tonight or Thursday morning and last through Friday morning before temperatures rise above freezing and precipitation tapers to drizzle. However, parts of the northeast coast may be slow to warm and freezing drizzle may persist through most of the day on Friday.

Total freezing rain accumulations possibly exceeding 20 mm are expected throughout the event. This significant ice buildup will make conditions very slippery. The public is advised to prepare for possible power outages and dangerous travel conditions.

Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots will become icy, slippery and extremely hazardous. Extended and widespread utility outages are possible.

Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.

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