MESSY SPRING STORM

Hey Folks,

1:30 PM UPDATE

Here's the latest on the Storm moving in tonight.

-As mentioned it moves in tonight and this system will linger all the way until Sunday morning!!!

-The bulls-eye in terms of Snowfall looks like it will be Bonavista North to Gander to Terra Nova... right now it appears as though 20-25 cm will fall within the next 24 hours, with another 10-15 cm Friday night and Saturday.

-Notre Dame Bay, The Bay of Exploits and Grand Falls-Windsor could get a decent smack from this system as well. 10-15 cm Tonight and Friday... with another 3-8 cm on Friday night and Saturday.

-My totals are likely a bit high through Buchans and the Humber Valley... I think 5-8 cm would be about it. However up towards the Baie Verte Peninsula I think 15 cm is a good possibility.

-The West Coast and up The Northern Peninsula is looking at 2-5 cm.

-The diving line between Rain and Snow appears to be the Coast of Bays and then up through Clarenville and the Bonavista Peninsula. In this area I think you'll see a solid mix of both Rain and Wet Snow. Snow and Freezing Rain tonight will should change to Rain tomorrow. However you could see a solid period of 5-10 mm of Freezing Rain by morning. It looks like a mix back to Wet Snow on Friday night and into Saturday.

-Most of the Burin Peninsula plus St. John's and the Avalon are looking like a Mostly Rain event. We could see a decent period of Freezing Rain this evening before temperatures bump up above the Freezing Mark overnight. 5-10 mm tonight, 15-20 mm on Friday, with another 5 mm on Friday night. However I think there will be some wet snow mixing in overnight and through the day on Saturday.

-Here's the map I've made up early this afternoon. I may tweak this a bit before Here & Now tonight.

-WINDS. As I mentioned last night the Northeast Coast is really going to see some Windy conditions with this system. Already this afternoon the Twillingate weather station is showing gusts to 60 km/h. Winds will really pick up tonight and tomorrow and everyone from Fleur de Lys to Grates Cove along the Northeast Coast could see Gusts to 100 km/h. That will mean lost of Blowing Snow and white out conditions for Central regions seeing the Snowfall. Even into Conception Bay and along the Coast of the St. John's Northerly winds could gust to 90 km/h. It appears the winds will start to subside into Saturday.

More details tonight on Here & Now.
