VALENTINE'S DAY STORM
A Special Weather Statement is already in effect for Newfoundland in regards to our next Storm which will track in on Friday, with some Weather love for Valentines Day.
Snow will spread across the Island on Friday morning, with a fairly quick change to Rain expected as warm air spreads into Southeastern sections, before eventually spreading into Central Newfoundland as well.
The Northwest half of the Island may also see some rain or drizzle mixing in, however not before what looks to be a significant shot of Snowfall.
Southeastern Labrador looks set to see all Snow.
WINDS will be a big story with this system with Gusts 100+ km/h currently looking set for much of Coastal Newfoundland on Friday. Some forecast models are projecting Gusts could exceed 120 km/h over Southern & Eastern Newfoundland.
I'll be watching this system closely over the next few days and will pass along more details & amounts as forecast models come into better agreement on exactly what we can expect.
