Special Weather Statement – Newfoundland January 3, 2017

St. John’s area received approximately 15cm of snow yesterday and are expecting strong winds and wintry precipitation on Wednesday through to Thursday.

This system will also bring a variety of wintry precipitation on Wednesday into Thursday. Snow is forecast at the onset starting Wednesday morning over southwestern Newfoundland and spreading north and eastward throughout the day. The snow is expected to quickly transition to ice pellets then eventually though freezing rain to rain as temperatures rise. The freezing precipitation may persist for an extended period of time over some areas during this transition. On Thursday the rain will end and cooler air will return with flurries and snow squalls likely to develop over western Newfoundland.
