CORNER BROOK: Brace yourself for a cold wind and some snow!

The soggy system that brought heavy rain and thunderstorms to the Maritime provinces will track south of the Avalon tonight and Wednesday morning. As the low pushes off to the east, the wind is coming around to the north and we can expect gusts to 60 km/h! Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees below normal across the region. That’s not the worst of it: as the low tracks south of the Avalon, colder air funnelling into the top of the system will bring some wet snow into the mix by Wednesday morning. There could be as much as 2 to 5 cm of new snow across southern Newfoundland — mostly away from the coasts and over the higher elevations. While Thursday looks quite lovely across the Maritimes, the cool, windy weather will linger in Newfoundland.
