A Look Ahead to Easter Weekend

Hey folks,

The best part of having this blog is that I can jump ahead a few days and talk about what's way ahead on the horizon. I know Easter Weekend is a big travel holiday. Perhaps you're heading from the City into Central... or crossing the Island to the West Coast. Or maybe you're making the trip from Goose Bay to Labrador City. With that in mind, I thought I'd give you the heads up on what's brewing on the horizon.

Looks pretty good across most of the Province... warm temperatures across the Island... and even into Eastern Labrador. However there could be some light precip hanging around in Labrador.

Looks nice and quiet across the Province. The calm before the storm!

Saturday night into Sunday we indeed have another Messy mixed system moving in from the South. And like so many storms this past Winter the key is... where will the centre of the Low track? The answer is going to be very key to whether you folks in Central and Western Newfoundland get Rain or Snow with this system.
As you can see below, the GEM model is tracking the centre of the system right up into the Gulf... which would mean the bulk of the precip for Newfoundland would be Rain.

However, the GFS American model (below) is tracking the system up through Central Newfoundland which would mean Rain for the East, a mix for Central and Snow for the West Coast and up to the Northern Peninsula. Which ever solution ends up playing out.... you folks in Labrador won't be seeing it until late Sunday into Monday and it will be all Snow.

I'm going to watch every run closely over the next 24-48 hours and I'll keep you updated.
