Heavy Rain to NFLD
- Rain, heavy at times, will spread back over Southwestern Newfoundland ahead tonight and then continue through Friday and Friday night as a moist southerly flow persists.
- Further amounts of 70-100 mm can be expected by Saturday morning, with additional rainfall likely during the day on Saturday. Rainfall warnings are in place
- Meanwhile, a northeasterly flow will develop over the northern peninsulas on Friday causing temperatures to fall and rain to change over to freezing rain.This may lead to significant amounts of ice accretion over some areas, potentially resulting in power outages and hazardous driving conditions. Conditions should begin to improve again as the trough lifts further to the north and temperatures begin to rise.
