Alerts for: Avalon Peninsula Southeast
Rainfall Warning in effect for:
- Avalon Peninsula Southeast
Rain, heavy at times is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall. Locations: St. John's and vicinity, and the southern Avalon Peninsula. Total rainfall: 25 to 35 mm (highest over the southeastern Avalon). Time span: continuing until Friday morning. Remarks: Freezing rain has changed over to rain over many coastal areas, and will continue to change to rain over most locations later tonight. However, freezing rain may persist over higher elevations well after the changeover occurs. Pooling of water and minor flooding may occur in areas prone to runoff from melting snow, especially in areas where storm drains are not clear. Be prepared for winter conditions at higher elevations. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance. Rainfall warnings are issued when significant rainfall is expected. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to NLstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
