Regional Weather Forecast

The powerful fall storm now sits well offshore – out over the North Atlantic. Cold air funnelling down behind the weather bomb continues to fill in the void left behind by the intense low pressure system. The winds will take on a more northerly direction before diminishing to light late Thursday in Corner Brook. A narrow ridge of high pressure is building in from the west and will offer up a brief break before the next round of wind and snow. That system will be approaching from the south-west and should slide across the Avalon Friday night into Saturday. We can expect to stay on the cooler side of the system for several hours. Snowfall totals could be in the 15 to 20 cm range by Saturday night. Onshore winds behind the system will once again trigger snow squalls at the coasts into Sunday.
