Statements

10:36 AM NST Tuesday 23 January 2018
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Corner Brook and vicinity

A mixed bag of precipitation is expected tonight and Wednesday.

A low pressure system approaching from the Great Lakes is forecast to track northeastward along the St. Lawrence River tonight and then move into southeastern Labrador late Wednesday.

Snow will begin over southwestern Newfoundland this evening and spread northeastward during the night. The snow will transition through ice pellets and freezing rain to rain by Wednesday morning over most areas.

Rainfall amounts are forecast in the 5 to 15 mm range, which is much less than the January 12, 13 and 14th event. However, some areas along the Humber River and in the Bonne Bay area remain sensitive to water levels and erosion. The public is advised to watch for notices from local authorities, as it is unclear what effect more rain and another thaw will have in vulnerable areas.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.weathernlwo.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #NLwx.
