Newfoundland Forecast:

The weather across the Island tonight will be on the quieter side of things. Yes, there will be some flurries near north facing coastlines, but nothing major is in the cards. Mostly cloudy skies will be the dominant sky condition. Lows near freezing in the east and south, to near -5 central, west and on the Northern Peninsula. Gusty winds will be found on the northern and eastern coasts of the Island, from the north at 30-50 km/h. Wind chills will be well below freezing.

Winds will again be from the north on Wednesday, so more flurries are likely near north facing coastlines. This includes the St. John’s Metro. Skies will be cloudy to mostly cloudy, with the best chance of more sun than cloud likely on the South Coast and near south facing coastlines. Highs near freezing.

Thursday will see quiet conditions across the Island, through most of the day, as we await the arrive of our next weather maker. Highs will be near freezing and skies partly to mostly cloudy.

The next area of low pressure to affect Newfoundland will move from Nova Scotia on Thursday to east of the Avalon by Friday evening. The exact track, and strength of the low will determine how much and where the heaviest snow falls. Those two factors will also determine where the rain/snow line sets up. Ahead of this impending weather maker, Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement.

As it stands now most of the Island will see significant snowfall. The area likely to see the highest amounts is hard to pin point at this moment. The Avalon Peninsula, Burin Peninsula, Clarenville area, Bonavista Peninsula and Connaigre Region will likely see rain mixing with snow. As details become clearler over the next day or two, the forecast will too.
