Watches

10:57 AM NST Sunday 25 January 2015
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Gros Morne

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

A strong westerly flow of Arctic air will cause snow squalls to develop along the west coast of Newfoundland late today and then persist into Monday.

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.
