Statements

3:51 PM NDT Monday 20 October 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Gros Morne

Windy conditions tonight.

An intense low pressure system over the Strait of Belle Isle will track northeastward tonight. A strong southwesterly flow associated with this system is expected to persist over Newfoundland tonight before diminishing Tuesday.

Wind warnings have been issued for the Northern Peninsula where forecast guidance indicates winds will be strongest. Elsewhere, gusts have reached 80 km/h and are expected to continue before subsiding somewhat over much of the island this evening. However some areas, especially in Northeastern Newfoundland, may continue to experience strong gusts through tonight, potentially approaching warning criteria along parts of coast if the low becomes a little more intense than currently expected.

Environment Canada will continue to monitor this system and provide additional updates as new information becomes available.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
