Much of eastern Newfoundland was warned Wednesday to get ready for another dump of snow, although it's expected to be relatively fluffy.

Environment Canada issued snowfall warnings covering the Burin and Avalon peninsulas.

Snowfall amounts are expected to vary widely, from as little as 10 cm to as much as 25 cm.

CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon said models vary on what the system may deliver.

"Some are a bit easier to get a handle on and some are a little more tricky. Tonight's system is in the tricky category," Snoddon said.

He said the volume of forecasts is being affected by what he called "the fluff factor," meaning light, fluffy snow will be widely seen.

The southeast Avalon is expected to bear the brunt of the weather.

Snoddon said snow will start falling in the St. John's area around midnight.
