Warnings

11:15 AM NST Friday 03 February 2023
Extreme Cold Warning in effect for:

  • Gros Morne

A period of very cold wind chills is expected.

Coldest wind chills: near -30.

Maximum winds: southwesterly near 60 km/h with gusts between 80 and 110 km/h.

Locations: Newfoundland.

Time span: Saturday morning to Saturday afternoon or evening.

Remarks: Some areas along the coast may be slightly warmer than areas further inland. However, given the strength of the winds, there will still be an elevated risk of hypothermia and frostbite, especially for exposed skin.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

If it's too cold for you to stay outside, it's too cold for your pet to stay outside.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.

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.

Locations: the Great Northern Peninsula.

Time span: overnight tonight to near noon Saturday.

Remarks: Wind gusts will generally be strongest over exposed areas, especially in snow squalls.

Some areas may experience a second period of wind gusts reaching 100 km/h once winds shift to northwesterly on Saturday night.

Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. Motorists, especially in high profile vehicles, may expect hazardous driving conditions on highways subject to strong cross winds.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.

Watches

11:08 AM NST Friday 03 February 2023
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Gros Morne

A period of intense snow squalls producing blizzard-like conditions is expected.

Time span: tonight until Sunday morning.

Preceding snowfall expected today: near 10 cm.
Snowfall tonight through Sunday morning: near 10 cm, except locally 20 to 30 cm in snow squalls.

Locations: along the west coast from Plum Point to Channel-Port aux Basques, as well as Northern Peninsula East, Green Bay - White Bay, and Deer Lake - Humber Valley.

Remarks: Poor visibility in flurries and squalls will be most widespread along the west coast. East of the Long Range Mountains, poor visibility will be most severe directly under snow squall bands.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

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@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
