Environment Canada says damaging winds, hail and heavy rain could result from a severe thunderstorm impacting western and central Newfoundland.
Environment Canada is warning people in the western and central portions of Newfoundland to watch out for rain, hail, and damaging winds as part of a potentially severe thunderstorm.
In a news release issued late Saturday afternoon, the federal government department advised that a line of thundershowers was moving over western Newfoundland. That weather is expected to move into the central region early Saturday evening.
The thundershowers could potentially produce hail, strong wind gusts, and localized heavy downpours.
Areas affected are Green Bay-White Bay, Grand Falls-Windsor and vicinity, Buchan and the interior, Bay St. George, Corner Brook and vicinity, Deer Lake and the Humber Valley, Gros Morne, and Parson’s Pond-Hawke’s Bay.
