Some snow tonight, followed by a quieter Thursday

An area of low pressure to the east of the Island, moving from northeast to southwest, will bring some snow to eastern and central areas overnight into early Thursday. While snowfall amounts will not be super high, some inland locations will see 5 to 10 cm of wet snowfall. Areas along the coast will see significantly less than 5 cm.

Once that moves through, the weather across much of the Province on Thursday will be pretty quiet. There will be scattered showers and flurries for areas near north facing shores of the ISland and near the coast in Labrador.

At the same time, a strong low near the coast of the northeastern United States and the Maritime Provinces will bring snow to New England and parts of NS, NB, and PEI. Yesterday it looked like that low was going to remain far enough south of our Province it wouldn’t have much of an impact on our weather. Today it is looking like the low may drift far enough north that some snow, or rain, will fall over much of the Island from later Friday into Saturday. At this time amounts do not look to be heavy, but could be significant in some areas. As of now it’s too soon to say which areas will see the most snow and how much will fall.
