Blizzard Warning

Issued at 10:53 Tuesday 09 February 2016
Summary

Blizzard conditions with poor visibility in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring. Snow, heavy at times, is forecast to give accumulations reaching 20 cm by this evening. The snow will be combined with strong northeasterly winds with gusts ranging from 70 km/h inland to 90 km/h along the coast. As a result, blizzard conditions can be expected with near zero visibility in blowing snow. Conditions will improve this evening as the snow tapers off and the wind diminishes. Snow is expected to redevelop late tonight and will continued into Wednesday morning, giving another 10 cm of accumulation. However, winds are expected to be much lighter with this second episode of snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherNLWO@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NLwx.

Winter Storm Warning

Issued at 22:05 Monday 08 February 2016
Summary

Hazardous winter conditions are expected. A low pressures system crossing eastern Newfoundland will bring winter storm conditions Tuesday into Tuesday night. Snow at times heavy giving 15 to 25 cm and strong northeasterly winds gusting between 70 and 90 km/h will combine to reduce visibility in blowing snow beginning Tuesday morning. Blustery conditions are expected to persist into Tuesday night. A second low will cross eastern Newfoundland overnight Tuesday into Wednesday bringing another round of heavy snow. Although winds may not be as strong, another 5 to 10 cm is possible with this system. Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together. Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherNLWO@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NLwx.
