Special Weather Statement

Issued at 15:45 Wednesday 18 January 2017

Potential winter storm Friday night and Saturday.

Forecast guidance continues to indicate potential for a winter storm to impact eastern Newfoundland. Given that its arrival is still a couple of days away, there remains uncertainty around some of the details, and additional information will be provided as the storm moves closer. To assist with planning, these are key messages from meteorologists at Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Wind: Current indications suggest a high likelihood of strong northerly winds with this storm, with the maximum gusts occurring Friday night and Saturday. Winds are expected to gradually ease Saturday night into Sunday as the storm moves away.

Snow: While it is too soon to forecast accumulations, the potential exists for significant amounts of snow. Current indications suggest that the snow will begin over the Avalon Peninsula late in the day on Friday, and then continue through Friday night while also spreading to some areas further west. The snow is expected to taper off Saturday afternoon or evening.

Impacts and actions: The combination of heavy snowfall and poor visibilities in blowing snow could create hazardous travel conditions. Strong winds sometimes lead to power outages. The public is advised to plan accordingly and to check for updated information, as forecasts may change.
