ST. JOHN’S: Wardrobe change on the horizon

From its humble beginnings as a weak area of low pressure over the Carolinas, the weather system has intensified to a winter storm as it heads to Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula. On the cold side of the system, snowfall amounts are in the 15 to 25 cm range for Newfoundland, but there’s also some warm air with this one. Showers and a mix of ice pellets, freezing rain and snow are tracking on the southern edge of the weather maker. Very warm air will push up across the Avalon with double-digit highs for Wednesday. Behind the storm, the Arctic pipeline will open up. Northwest winds gusting to 60 km/h will bring plunging temperatures, onshore snow squalls and mid-winter like wind chill to start the weekend. There is a nice moderating trend setting up for the early part of next week.
