An area of low pressure will move through Labrador tonight into tomorrow. This low will bring the first significant snowfall of the season to much of the Big Land, with between 10 and 20+ cm on the menu tonight into tomorrow evening.

The heaviest snow across interior and western Labrador will fall tonight into early Wednesday morning. Farther east, the heaviest snow will fall between tomorrow morning and tomorrow evening. Areas for Churchill Falls to Cartwright, points south, will see the snow mix with rain during the day tomorrow. Temperatures hold near freezing tonight and rise into the single numbers above by tomorrow afternoon. Some gusty winds will help blow and drift the snow around.

On the Island the weather will be fairly quiet tonight, with lows in the east and central getting to near freezing. In fact, a bit of freezing drizzle is possible in central early tomorrow morning. Temperatures tomorrow climb into the teens as warmer air surges northwards south of the low. Highs reach the teens for most! An area of rain will move across the Island from west to east during the day. This area of rain will be on the West Coast by morning, central by noon and on the Avalon by early evening. Most of us will see 5-10 mm of rain at some point throughout the day.

The bigger issue will be some wind. Winds on the West Coast and Southwest Coast gust 80 or 100 km/h Wednesday morning. Those high winds move onto the South Coast and into central by mid-day and then eastern areas by middle to late afternoon. The gusty winds move offshore Wednesday night.

Thursday will be a much quiet day across the Province, with a mix of sun and cloud and highs in the single numbers. The next weather maker arrives later on Friday, and may bring a fair amount of rain with it. For full details on the extended forecast, check out my video in the Weather Centre!

Have a great night!
