ST. JOHN'S: Potentially damaging storm set to strike

A warm front extending ahead of a power fall storm over Lake Superior is already pulling mild air into Atlantic Canada. As the sprawling system tracks eastward, the pressure gradient will tighten and strong south winds will gust to 100 km/h tonight and Tuesday. Rainfall totals will range from 50 to as high as 75 mm and will cause localized flooding where it falls on frozen ground. Behind the rain and wind, we can expect falling temperatures and 5 to 10 cm of snow on Wednesday.
