The RCMP is warning motorists of heavy snowfall and poor visibility in the area of Trans Canada Highway between Pasadena and Deer Lake.
Drivers are asked to use extreme caution in the area.
According to Environment Canada, a snow squall warning remains in effect in the area that could produce near zero visibilities and locally significant snowfall accumulations over brief periods of time. A frigid westerly flow associated with a deep low pressure system east of the Labrador Sea is causing intermittent snow squalls for the west and south coasts.
These squalls are expected to continue on and off into Saturday, when conditions are expected to gradually improve.
