Special Weather Statement

Issued at 15:53 Monday 23 January 2017

A mix of wintry weather on the way for later Wednesday into Thursday.

A warm front, associated with a low pressure system tracking up the Eastern Seaboard, will cross Newfoundland Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Ahead of this front, most of Newfoundland can expect a brief period of snow followed by an extended period of ice pellets or freezing rain before transitioning over to rain. Over the Great Northern Peninsula, precipitation will likely remain as snow or ice pellets. The precipitation should begin around midday Wednesday over southwestern Newfoundland then gradually spread north and eastward throughout the afternoon and evening. Also on Wednesday, strong easterly winds will affect the Wreckhouse area and most of the West Coast, especially in areas prone to enhanced easterly winds. Conditions should improve throughout the day on Thursday.
