-Our next Coastal Storm will be a slow moving system and will really making
it presence felt across the Island over the next 2-3 days.
-Rain & Wind will be the big story over the next few days in
Newfoundland, though Central & Western sections of the Island could see
some wet snow, ice pellets and freezing rain early Thursday morning. Periods of
Rain will keep both Thursday and Friday damp for the Island.
-The heaviest rainfall over the next 2 days looks destined from Central
& across the Southeastern half of the Island, with the 'bulls-eye' looking
likely to fall along the Southeast Coast, & across the Avalon. Based on the
latest forecast models, that 'bulls-eye' could certainly be in the 50-75 mm
range. Here's a look at the latest ECMWF European forecast model's rainfall
projections by Saturday morning.
THE NEXT 36 HOURS
Have a look at the latest GEM Regional model. Rain & Wind spread into
Newfoundland and by Friday morning, is rolling into Southeastern Labrador.
MORE SNOW IN LABRADOR
The latest thinking is that the Rain/Snow line with the Storm will be around the Happy Valley-Goose Bay & Groswater Bay areas. Having said that, this is
going to be a wait and see and is heavily dependent on the exact track of the system. Stay tuned, because just to the North & West of that line, we could see another 10-15+ cm through the day on Friday and even more Friday night and into Saturday.
Again stay tuned for the latest on this, especially you folks along the Coast of Labrador and into HV-GB.
As our Storm spins into the Labrador Sea on Friday night and into Saturday,
the Low will wrapping in a very cool air mass for the entire Province. Saturday
looks cold & windy right across NL, with periods of Snow looking
likely to continue over Eastern Labrador. Onshore flurries & even some Snow Squalls look like a good possibility for Western Newfoundland Friday night and into Saturday. Sunday looks cool, breezy &
bright for Newfoundland & Labrador. Have a look at the Long Range GFS Model.
