Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula Southwest


Snow Squall Warning in effect for:

  • Avalon Peninsula Southwest

Persistent snow squalls are occurring. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate. Further snowfall: locally up to 10 cm in snow squalls with higher amounts possible. Maximum wind gusts: 60 to 70 km/h. Locations: the Burin Peninsula and Avalon Peninsula. Time span: continuing until late Saturday morning. Remarks: Flurries and snow squalls will become more intense tonight while the westerly winds strengthen. Conditions are expected to improve as the winds ease Saturday morning. Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Snow squall warnings are issued when bands of snow form that 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 or tweet reports using #NLwx.
