Monday, January 6th 2020, 3:00 pm - Heavy snow and strong wind gusts will continue to impact parts of Atlantic Canada through Monday afternoon
A potent low pressure system is continuing to blast Newfoundland with heavy, blowing snow and dangerous blizzard-like conditions Monday, prompting widespread closures across eastern portions of the province.
Thousands continue to be without power as of Monday morning, as snowfall totals in Newfoundland could hit 50 cm by the time it tapers off Monday afternoon. Nearly 40 cm of snow has already fallen amid the blizzard conditions that have made travel impossible at times.
The system is also responsible for causing a WestJet plane to slide off the runway in Halifax Sunday, several flight cancellations, power outages and vehicle collisions.
See below for a look at the latest pictures and videos from the winter storm that is impacting Atlantic Canada.
When your hubby is "essential" snow day doesn't mean sleeping in, it means getting up extra early to dig out! ❄️❄️❄️ #nlwx #nlstorm #snowday https://t.co/ZVJichKKp4Caitlin Urquhart on Twitter

One of the rare occasions in #Halifax when the snow sticks around long enough to get the snowshoes out. Wind blew all the snow from the trees onto me in pic 2 #nsstormJames Steenberg on Twitter
