MONDAY NL WEATHER RUNDOWN
I hope you had a great Weekend! It was certainly an interesting one in the East with Hurricane Gonzalo zipping by. We certainly had some impressive rainfall with upwards of 30-60+ mm (all in a 3-4 hour period) but thankfully the strongest part of the Storm stayed offshore, where winds were clocked at 120+ km/h. Its an active start to the week with a strong low working in from the South. The system will roll up the West Coast today, into Southeastern Labrador tonight and then into the Labrador Sea by Tuesday morning. Wind, rain, thunderstorms, warm temps, cool temps and snow... like a typical Fall low, this one will have it all.
WIND: We have Wind Warnings in effect for the Northern Peninsula and Special Weather Statements in effect for the rest of the Island and Eastern parts of Labrador, with some gusty winds set to develop this afternoon and this evening as this system starts to crank up into a strong one. Generally, most of the Island will see Southwest gusts in the 70-90 km/h range this afternoon, this evening and overnight. However for the Northern Peninsula & Straits winds looks set to gust in from the Southwest then West in the 90-110 km/h range. Southeastern Labrador back into HV-GB will likely see gusts to 60-80 km/h this afternoon & evening.
RAIN: This system has a lot of juice with it. We're going to be seeing some another 10-20 mm up the West Coast today and 20-40 mm from the Straits to Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Makkovik today through this evening. In Central & Eastern Newfoundland generally 5-10 mm looks set with heavier (10-20 mm) amounts in heavy pockets and thunderstorms.
THUNDER: Yep. October 20th and we have some Thunderstorms this morning over the South Coast and Burin Peninsula dropping some heavy rain and bringing some lightning. These storms will weaken but slowly wander North and East and we could hear a few rumbles in Central and over the Avalon later this morning & early this afternoon.
THIS AFTERNOON: As mentioned above, winds will howl across the Island this afternoon and overnight. After a wet and cloudy morning, rain will taper to a chance showers across Central & Eastern parts of the Island this afternoon with the Sun breaking through at times and temperatures rising back into the mid-high teens! The West Coast will remain mainly cloudy with a better chance of showers and temperatures falling into the single digits. Periods of rain for the Northern Peninsula and Southeastern Labrador. The North Coast and back to Western Labrador will see rain mixing to snow and cool single digit highs.
TUESDAY: Winds will be howling across the Island through Tuesday morning and then ease into the afternoon. We'll see Sun and Cloud and a nice one shaping up for Eastern Newfoundland on Tuesday with highs near 10-12. Clouding up over Central, but staying dry with highs near 10. The West Coast looks cloudy with sea effect showers rolling in from the Gulf at times and highs holding in the 7 to 8 range. In Labrador, flurries will linger in the West & North with highs near 2. Clearing for HV-GB (with a risk of a morning flurries) and highs near 5. We'll see Sun and Cloudy for the Southeast with high single digit temps.
LONG RANGE: Wednesday and Thursday look bright and seasonal across NL. Clouding up with Friday and Saturday on the Island with a system bringing rain, but warmer temperatures in from the South.
