A Weekend Storm? and Ocean Ice Charts
Just quickly off the top I'll mention this system sliding in from the West. It's coming in from Hudson's Bay and Quebec... and has very little in the way of moisture. 5 cm of Snow in Labrador City today will likley be the most precipitation anyone sees in this Province. A Rain/Snow mix for the Island on Thursday... however 2 cm of Snow, 2 mm of Rain is likley what we're looking at here. The Avalon and Eastern Newfoundland by not see any precip at all on Thursday. However on Friday the Eastern Island will see a bit of a Rain/Snow mix from the lingering cold front.
I was going to post something here on the blog yesterday... however the models were still doing their flip flopping on the eventual track. So I thought I would wait a day... and I'm glad I did. This morning, the Canadian GEM model and the American GFS model now have a simliar solution.
They're both forecasting the Centre of the Low to track up through Placentia Bay bringing what looks to be a messy Rain/Snow Mix for the Avalon and perhaps some decent snowfall amounts for Central. 15-25 cm wouldn't be out of the question for the St. Alban's, Grand Falls-Windsor to the Burin and Terra Nova area... IF THIS TRACK HOLDS. Western Newfoundland and Eastern Labrador could get a pretty good smack from this system as well... again it all depends on which track this thing takes.
Anyway, I'm waving the flag right now... there's something brewing for sure... I'll take a look at how the models progress over the next 24 hours and I'll have another update tomorrow here on the blog and on Here & Now.
OCEAN ICE CHARTS
Here's a look at the Current Iceberg Count.
If you'd like to see the charts and maps for yourself... just pop over to the Canadian Ice Services website.
Again, more details on the weekend system, tomorrow here on the blog.
