    An intense low pressure system will track northward across eastern Newfoundland on Saturday. Snow ahead of this system will develop over the south coast of Newfoundland overnight and spread to the Great Northern Peninsula by Saturday morning.

    The combination of fresh snow and very strong winds will create blizzard conditions with near zero visibilities in blowing snow on Saturday. Snowfall accumulations of 15 to 25 centimeters (5.9″ to 9.8″) are expected by Saturday evening for areas west of the storm’s track.

    Any change in track could have a significant impact on snowfall accumulations.

    Snowfall warning in effect for:

    Iqaluit region

    A mild and moist flow of air from the southeast continues to bring bands of snow to Iqaluit. So far 27 cm (10.6″) have fallen over the last couple of days. The influx of cooler and drier air suggests that further snowfall amounts should be limited to 2 to 4 centimeters (0.8″ to 1.6″) tonight and a couple more on Saturday. However, there remains the possibility of locally heavy bands of snow giving higher amounts.

    This strengthening northwest wind will also bring an extended period of blowing snow Saturday and Saturday night. Visibilities may be near zero at times in snow and blowing snow.
