Strong southwesterly winds gusting to 100 km/h expected late Tuesday afternoon in the Red Bay to L'Anse-au-Clair area of Labrador.

For Nain and vicinity, snowfall amounts near 25 centimetres are expected by Tuesday morning with poor visibilities in blowing snow.

Environment Canada is warning of dangerous winter conditions in these areas.

This is due to an intensifying low pressure system now over central Labrador that will track northward to reach the North Coast by Tuesday morning. 

Snow will become heavier along the North Coast as this system deepens, especially in the Nain area, where accumulations near 25 centimetres can be expected tonight into Tuesday morning.

In addition, strong northeasterly winds gusting to 60 km/h will develop tonight creating blowing snow and poor visibilities. Conditions will improve during the morning on Tuesday as the snow tapers off.

A strong southwesterly flow will develop over southern Labrador in the wake of this low. 

The strongest winds are forecast to occur near the Strait of Belle Isle where gusts near 100 km/h can be expected late in the afternoon on Tuesday. Winds will ease Tuesday night as the low moves away.
