ST. JOHN’S: Windy, wet weather ahead

A slow-moving area of low pressure tracking towards southern Newfoundland is serving up a little bit of everything. The warm air on the leading edge of the low brings the wintry mix to rain, but that’s only temporary. A wind shift to the northwest behind the system pulls in some colder air and a return to snow. This storm is more about the wind than the snowfall totals: they will range from 3 to 5 cm, but west to north-westerly winds gusting as high as 70 km/h will cause whiteout conditions behind the system on Wednesday. Clearing will follow the weather maker and we’ll enjoy a break until Saturday. The next system is expected to stall to our west and that means more rain that snow. Some of us could get as much as 40 mm Saturday into Sunday. So much for a White Christmas.
