What a Storm...
Well, as advertised that was quite a Storm that pounded the Island of Newfoundland on Friday and Saturday.
More than 120 mm of Rain in the East... 35-50+ cm of Snow along the Northeast Coast and of course the crippling Freezing Rain in Conception Bay North and all along the Bonavista Peninsula. Winds were clocked at more than 120 km/h along the South Coast and more than 90 km/h along the Northeast Coast.
Here are some more numbers from Environment Canada.

Just a massive Storm. Of course the power outages along the Bonavista Peninsula and in Conception Bay North continue today and for the latest on that situation check out cbc.ca/nl and of course Here & Now tonight.
-The good news is, this week will be much quieter across the Province. We'll be dealing with a few flurries off and on over the next few days... and perhaps some sun later this week as an area of High Pressure tries to edge it's way in.
-Finally, I just wanted to let you know I'm going to be doing a presentation at the Marine Institute in St. John's tonight. It's all part of MUN's Geographic Information Systems day. I'll be talking about trying to forecast the weather here in Newfoundland and Labrador and the grey hairs that go along with it!!! haha.
It's taking place in Hampton Hall at the Marine Institute on Ridge Road tonight (Monday) at 8pm. Admission is free.
