An area of low pressure will continue to cross Newfoundland and Labrador today.

The low will bring some unsettled weather for most of Newfoundland.

On the Great Northern Peninsula, snow will persist throughout the day.

Heavy rainfall is expected for the Southwestern coast of Newfoundland with rainfall amounts of 60 mm possible. Along the west coast of Newfoundland rainfall amounts of 30 mm is possible. This may cause some localized flooding in some areas.

There will also be strong wind. Winds are expected to gust anywhere from 100 to 120 km/h across the Island.

In Labrador, heavy snow is possible across the region. In Western Labrador snowfall amounts of 20 to 35 cm is possible. 15 to 25 cm is possible for Coastal Labrador.
