Special Weather Statement has been issued.
Special weather statement in effect for:
Avalon Peninsula North
A prolonged period of freezing rain or ice pellets is expected.
Total freezing rain: 25 to 50 mm.
Time span: Friday through Saturday overnight.
Remarks: After a period of rain tonight, precipitation will transition to freezing rain or ice pellets by midday Friday, which could last for a prolonged period of time. Given the amount of freezing rain, ice accretion could be moderate to severe and may lead to widespread power outages.
There is still some uncertainty as to which areas will receive primarily freezing rain and which will receive ice pellets. Freezing rain warnings will likely be issued later today or tonight as details become clearer.
