Good Friday morning!
We are going to have a beauty of day on the Island, with lots of sun and highs in the teens. Some areas may get close to the elusive 20 degrees!
Expect showers and drizzle and or flurries and freezing drizzle on the north coast of Labrador today. South of there expect some sunshine today, for a large part of the day. There will be some showers pushing in Labrador West during the afternoon.
Have a great Friday!

Friday Evening’s Forecast | Rain & Snow on the way to the Province
A weak area of low pressure will develop over the Lower North Shore of Quebec and swing into Labrador this weekend. This low will drive rain, and even wet snow, across the Province between tonight and late Sunday. Once into next week, we will be in a relatively unsettled weather pattern, but the systems look to be transient, meaning they will move through the region quickly. And once past this weekend, there doesn’t look to be much in the way of significant precipitation events as I look into next week.
Rain will arrive on the Island Saturday afternoon on the West and Southwest Coast and Saturday night just about everywhere else. Rain will end Sunday morning, from west to east, but showers will linger into the afternoon. Parts of Central and northeast coast may also see a period of rain Sunday afternoon. Rainfall amounts look to be light to moderate, but some areas will pick up 20-30 mm of much-needed rainfall in that time frame.
Rain and wet snow will also fall in Labrador between Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Some higher elevations of interior Labrador, and even on the coast, will pick up 15-30 cm of wet snowfall. Lower elevations will likely see some mix of rain and snow, as temperatures will borderline from Saturday afternoon into Sunday.
