Thursday, March 23, 2017, 8:47 PM - A departing low pressure system continues to bring strong winds making for difficult travel conditions in Newfoundland amid blowing snow.

As a result, Environment Canada has issued a blowing snow advisory for parts of the island.

"Strong northwesterly winds gusting up to 70 km/h combined with freshly fallen snow will continue to reduce visibilities in blowing snow tonight, especially over the Port au Port Peninsula and areas south of Stephenville to Port Aux Basques," says the weather agency. "Conditions will improve Friday morning."
