An area of low pressure that is currently over Oklahoma will
move northeastward over the next few days.
By Wednesday the low will be south of the Avalon Peninsula. It
will be there that the storm will undergo rapid intensification.
The low is expected to linger for several days, possibly
lasting until Saturday.
Early on Thursday snow will begin over the Island. Snow will
be heavy and persistent over the Avalon and central Newfoundland.
On the southeastern Avalon, snow may change over to rain by
Thursday night before changing back to snow.
While considerably uncertainty remains with exact forecast
amounts, we expect the Avalon and Central Newfoundland to receive significant
snowfall. Snowfall amounts could total over 50 cm. We may also see wind gusts
up to 130 km/h.
A slight shift in the track could drastically decrease or
increase these numbers.
