Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula Southeast
Snow Squall Watch in effect for:
- Avalon Peninsula Southeast
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. Total snowfall: locally 5 cm in snow squalls with higher amounts possible. Maximum wind gusts: 60 to 70 km/h. Locations: Avalon Peninsula Southeast. Time span: this evening until Saturday morning. Remarks: Flurries and local snow squalls are expected to develop this evening and may intensify tonight. Conditions are expected to ease as a high pressure system disrupts the flow on Saturday. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. 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. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NLstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
