More snow, rain and wind on the way for later tonight thru Sunday for much of Newfoundland and Labrador.
It looks like the snow will arrive around midnight on the South Coast and will quickly spread north and east. The snow will end from south to north by noon Sunday for most of the Island. Accumulations will be in the 5-10 cm range by the time the snow ends.
Temperatures tonight will start well below freezing but will slowly rise to near freezing by morning south. The warmer air will move north through the morning hours or Sunday, with most of the Island, again south of the Northern Peninsula, seeing readings into the positive single numbers by early afternoon. Temperatures will continue to rise through the afternoon and evening, peaking in the upper single numbers to lower teens across many areas Sunday night.
In conjunction with the warm air, rain will fall across the majority of Newfoundland Sunday afternoon and night. Much of the Island will see amounts in the 5-10 mm range, with highs amounts, in the 20-40 mm range south and west.
The combination of warmth and rainfall will create rapid snow melt. Some localized flooding due to the melting snow is a good possibility.
Areas of Labrador, along and south of the TLH, will see snow developing later tonight and continuing into Sunday night. Amounts look to be in the 10-20 cm range by the time the snow ends Monday morning in the southeast.
Winds will turn gusty later Sunday across the Island, with coastal areas of southern and eastern Newfoundland seeing gusts approaching 100 to 120 km/h Sunday afternoon and night. Winds begin to relax Monday morning as the low pulls away.
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and the weekend!
