Statements

5:00 AM ADT Monday 15 October 2018
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Rigolet and vicinity

Snow, rain, and strong winds expected Tuesday.

An intense low pressure system is forecast to cross the Gulf of St. Lawrence tonight into Tuesday. The low will move out to sea Tuesday night.

Snowfall amounts of 5 to 10 cm are forecast by Tuesday evening, with the highest amounts expected inland and over higher terrain, especially over the Trans-Labrador Highway. Strong northerly winds may combine with the snow to produce reduced visibilities in blowing snow over higher terrain areas where temperatures remain below freezing.

The snow will mix with rain over lower elevation areas from Rigolet to Lodge Bay and in the Upper Lake Melville area. Rainfall amounts of 20 to 30 mm are expected by Tuesday evening from Norman Bay to Lodge Bay, with lesser amounts elsewhere.

Additional rain and snowfall amounts are expected for these areas Tuesday night.

The public is advised to monitor future Environment and Climate Change Canada forecasts as warnings may be issued.

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