CINDY DAY: Fall storm in no hurry

About 72 hours ago the weather system that sits just east of Sable Island was over Colorado. The fall storm is in no hurry to exit and will spend the next couple of days slowly tracking across the Avalon. It’s being held back by a stalled offshore low and has no place to go. The warmer air on the eastern edge of the system continues to produce rain over parts of Newfoundland while cold air filtering into the backside of the low will trigger bands of onshore snow. Where the wind comes in along north- and northwest-facing coastlines, the snow totals could end up in the 15- to 25-cm. range.

The icy north wind will also make it feel like midwinter with wind chill values of –10 C. to –15 C. forecast for the weekend; feel-like temperatures will be closer to –25 C. in Labrador City. We’re not getting much of a break between weather events – the next messy mix will move into the western corner of the Maritimes during the day Monday, reaching Newfoundland by Tuesday morning.
