BACK 2 BACK STORMS FOR NFLD
December 26, 2012 3:26 PM
Hey I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!
will remain quiet across NL through Wednesday and Thursday, however things are indeed set to turn active on Friday. A system rolling though the Northeast US &
Southern Ontario today, will push into the Maritimes on Thursday and then into
Newfoundland on Friday. This Storm looks set to bring a healthy dose of
both Snow & Wind to the Island. Once again, over Southeastern sections of the
Island it appears the Snow will change to Rain on Friday afternoon & evening.
The latest GEM, Canadian & European models are all showing a solid
20-30 cm shot of Snow for Central & Western Newfoundland. However
forecast models are still up in the air in terms of Snowfall amounts over the Southeast
and Metro. The timing of that change over will be key as to
whether we see a few wet cm or some double digit snowfall. Here's a sample of
the latest thinking for Snowfall amounts by Saturday evening.

THE NEXT ONE
As this system departs Saturday night & into Sunday, the focus will
already be shifting to the next Storm, which currently looks like a doozy. This
one is still a long ways out, but it appears this could be a powerful system
with lots of Wind & Snow. Once again the track will be key, as of today
(Wednesday) some forecast models have a track right up though Central
Newfoundland, which would mean a change to rain again for Eastern
However, if the system tracks just East of the Island, everyone would be looking at Snow. Again, this thing is still 4-5 days out, but right now it looks
like it could be a powerful storm capable of dropping a lot of Snow.
