Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement for the Big Land due to the threat of accumulating snow late Tuesday night into Wednesday or early Thursday.

It looks like the highest amounts (15+ cm) will fall across interior and northern Labrador. Amounts along and near the TCH look to be 15 cm or less at this time. More details later today.

Here is the text from the Special Weather Statement:

An approaching low pressure system will bring snow to Labrador mid week. Snow will develop over the Labrador interior Tuesday night and spread to the coast on Wednesday. There is the potential for significant early season snowfall amounts over much of Labrador, especially in the west and north. The snow is expected to change to freezing rain and eventually rain over most areas, except for the north where it will remain as snow the entire time. Precipitation will taper off to flurries or showers by Thursday as the low moves out to sea.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and statements for the latest details on this system.
