ST. JOHN'S: Snowfall... as temperatures fall. Travel with caution

This morning’s cold front has put an end to the spring-like conditions. A wind shift to the northwest behind the system will bring snow and falling temperatures through the day. The front will move out quickly, so I don’t expect much more than 5-10 cm of new snow for most. However, with a west to northwesterly wind developing, those totals could reach 15 cm in onshore snow and over higher elevations. Tomorrow will look and feel like winter with morning flurries and wind chill values near -10 all day.
