Stormy Weather on the Way

By: BwalshNLWeather, 9:47 PM GMT on January 23, 2015

Good evening

The system that brought snow, wind, and a brief changeover to drizzle on the Avalon, last night and today is now departing into the North Atlantic. Temperatures turn colder tonight with gusty winds, but no significant weather is expected through Saturday. A weak trough will bring flurries, or occasional light snow, across the Island tomorrow, but amounts will be light.

All attention now is on a very intense storm that will move ov...

More Snow for Newfoundland

By: BwalshNLWeather, 9:05 PM GMT on January 12, 2015

Good afternoon,

An elongated system, stretching from Newfoundland down to Florida, will bring snow to much of the Island over the next 18-24 hours, with the heaviest amounts over Eastern Newfoundland. As winds will be out of the southwest over the Burin and Southern Avalon Peninsulas overnight, the snow will at least mix with, if not change to, rain, reducing snowfall amounts in these regions. The forecast is a bit tricky due to the precipitation type ove...

Storm Update

Good afternoon,

Moderate to heavy snow over the Eastern Avalon will taper off this afternoon (likely between 2-3 PM in St. John’s), but winds gusting to 50 km/h will continue to produce blowing and drifting snow through the evening hours. The heaviest band of snow was stalled from St. Mary’s Bay over to the south end of Metro (Goulds) for several hours this morning, so the snowfall totals will be the highest in that region. Flurries should end by earl...

Winter Storm Warning for the Avalon

By: BwalshNLWeather, 8:17 PM GMT on January 07, 2015

Good afternoon,

The weather model consensus has improved over the past 24 hours with regards to the timing and amounts for snowfall over Eastern Newfoundland tonight and Thursday. Some disagreement is still present, but confidence is a bit higher and the snowfall amounts that have been provided over the past couple of days are largely the same.

A low developing south of Nova Scotia will pass southeast of the Avalon Peninsula near noon Thursday...

Snow Day for Thursday?

By: BwalshNLWeather, 8:38 PM GMT on January 06, 2015

Good afternoon,

While some disagreement remains between the weather guidance, there appears to be a strong likelihood that the Avalon Peninsula will see significant snowfall over the next 48 hours, with totals a bit higher than previously estimated. Two low pressure systems will affect Eastern Newfoundland from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening; however, the second low is the main concern as it will provide the highest snowfall, and stronger wi...
