Alerts for: St. John's and vicinity

Statements

3:55 PM NST Friday 22 February 2019
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • St. John's and vicinity

Snow and strong winds early next week.

An approaching system will bring strengthening winds and snowfall to Newfoundland Monday. Snow will develop over southwestern Newfoundland by early Monday morning and spread to the remainder of the island by Monday afternoon. While it is too early to forecast precipitation amounts, it appears snowfall will be highest over southern and western regions of Newfoundland, with significant accumulations possible. Gusty southeasterly winds accompanying the snow will generate blowing snow giving poor visibilities Monday and Monday night.

Conditions are expected to improve on Tuesday as the system moves away, though gusty westerly winds developing behind the system will persist for several days giving onshore flurries and possible snow squalls as temperatures turn colder.

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.
