Avalon Peninsula North

Alerts in Effect

Snow Squall Watch

Issued at 22:15 Friday 09 December 2016

A cold westerly flow has made conditions favourable for onshore flurries and embedded snow squalls for the western Avalon and Burin Peninsula tonight. While the flurries will only produce a couple of centimetres of accumulation over most areas tonight, localized amounts of 10 cm or more are possible under the more intense bands of snow. These snow squalls are expected to weaken overnight.


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 or tweet reports to #NLwx.
