Watches

9:48 PM NST Thursday 20 February 2020
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Burgeo - Ramea

Occasional snow squalls producing poor visibility in blowing snow will continue.

Locations: inland portions along the Burgeo Highway, the Bay D'Espoir area, and the Connaigre Peninsula.

Time span: tonight.

Additional snowfall accumulations: 2 to 4 cm in snow squalls.

Remarks: Snow squalls are expected to taper off overnight tonight or early Friday morning.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for the formation of bands of snow that could produce intense accumulating snow or near zero visibilities.

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.
