Newfoundland Forecast

Quiet weather across the Island tonight will be the rule. There will be a few scattered flurries north and west, but that’s about it. Skies look to partly to mostly cloudy. Lows range from -3° in the south to -6° east and west. Central will see the coldest lows, near -10°. Wind chills into the minus teens overnight as westerly winds will gust up to 40 km/h.


Wednesday will see a mix of sun and cloud across most of the Island. I can’t rule out a few flurries in the north and west, once more. Highs range from -1° in the south to -3° to -5° across the rest of the Island. Winds chills into the minus teens and northwest winds gust up to 40 km/h.


Snow will fly on the West Coast of the Island Thursday, but only light accumulations are expected. The rest of the Island should be dry, with perhaps a few flurries into central. Highs nearer to freezing.

The next “big” weather maker will arrive late Thursday night. It will bring rain, snow and wind to the Island through Friday. As of now it looks like the rain will fall in the east, while central and western areas see snow. The heaviest snow will likely fall in central. It’s a bit too early to talk about amounts, but I think a solid 10-20 cm is a good bet at this point. As the days draw nearer to Friday, the forecast will get clearer. Saturday looks to see the first bout of widespread snow squalls on the Island, behind out departing low.


Labrador Forecast

A few flurries will be possible in southeastern Labrador, otherwise the weather will be quiet and mainly clear. Lows range from -7° in the south to -10° in the north and -22° in Labrador City and Wabush. Winds in the east will be from northwest at 40-60 km/h, which puts wind chills into the minus 20s.


Wednesday will see some scattered flurries in the southeast, under a mix of sun and cloud. Northern and western areas stay mainly sunny. Winds will be gusty on the coast, with gusts up to 40 km/h. Winds in the west will be light. Highs range from -5° in the southeast to -9° in the north and -15° in the west.


Snow and flurries will return to Labrador West on Thursday, while eastern areas remain dry. Highs will be near -10°. Flurries will fly in the Lab West on Friday, while snow will develop in the southeast from the low affecting Newfoundland. Highs near -10°. Flurries will persist in Labrador throughout the weekend as an area of low pressure hangs around. Highs will be near -10° on Saturday and -6° on Sunday in the east, and -15° in the west.
