Snowfall Forecast for Fridays Storm

Posted by on Wednesday, January 27, 2016

A low pressure system off the southeastern coast of the United States will track northeastward today and make its way to pass southeast of Newfoundland on Friday afternoon.

The storm is expected to bring heavy snow, mixed precipitation, and strong winds to the Island. Based on it's current track the hardest hit areas will be eastern and central Newfoundland.

Some areas may see as much as 30 cm of snow. Across the southern Avalon and St. John's some mixed precipitation is expected. With regards to the west coast of the Island it really depends on the track of the storm. Some models are showing considerable snowfall amounts while some other model runs show only some flurries.

Winds will also be gusty Friday night into Saturday. Snow will start Friday morning and gradually intensify. Precipitation will start much later for the northwest coast and north coast of Newfoundland.
