A low pressure system containing a contribution of tropical moisture from what was Hurricane Matthew spread heavy rain across most of Newfoundland overnight Sunday into Monday. After an initial swath of heavy rain moved across southeastern Newfoundland Monday morning, the rain tapered off for several hours before returning again Monday night. Across central, southern, and western Newfoundland the rain was continuous and very heavy at times with several hours of extremely high rainfall rates in the order of 10 to 20 mm per hour on Monday and Monday night. The highest hourly rainfall amount was 42 mm recorded at Burgeo. Additionally, there were a number of unconfirmed reports of total rainfall amounts in excess of 200 mm across southern Newfoundland. Strong winds were experienced across many coastal communities and even some accumulating snow was reported across northern Newfoundland. This system resulted in numerous reports of flooding, road washouts and infrastructure damage across the island.
