Welcome to Spring!
And if you're in Eastern Newfoundland... get ready to shovel and snow blow through your first official weekend of spring 2009.
WINTER STORM WARNING FOR
Our system (Shelia) is gaining strength and headed North. We'll see snow beginning on the south coast through the overnight hours. In fact you folks along the Burin Peninsula and the Southern half of the Avalon from Trepassey to Argentia and Tors Cove could pick up 2 cm tonight. The Snow starts to ramp up for the Northern sections tomorrow morning 7-8 am.
I think the heaviest Snowfall will fall late Saturday afternoon-evening for the Southern sections and Saturday evening and overnight for Northern sections under the Warnings.
Winds will be a big factor from Saturday morning until Sunday morning when this system starts to pull away. Winds will be gusting to 60 & 70 km/h, especially late day Saturday and in through the overnight.
Ok, so the big question is.... HOW MUCH SNOW IS COMING?
The change over to Rain for the Avalon overnight Saturday into Sunday will keep the snowfall totals below 40 cm... however this looks like it could be biggest snowfall of the season for St. John's.
Happy shoveling and welcome to Spring!!!
