Public Advisory: Adverse Weather Conditions Anticipated
The Provincial Government is monitoring forecast information on a weather system that is anticipated to affect many regions of the province over the coming days (February 14-16).
Heavy snowfall with blowing snow, including impacts from storm surge, are forecast to begin early tomorrow morning (Wednesday, February 14) and will persist over the following days. Strong winds will combine with fresh snowfall to create poor visibility at times in heavy and blowing snow on the Avalon, Bonavista and Burin Peninsulas as well as the northeast coast.
The Provincial Emergency Operations Centre is currently activated to Level 1 – Enhanced Monitoring. While no action is required from emergency management partners at this time, they are asked to continue monitoring for updates and forecast information.
Residents are encouraged to monitor the Environment Canada forecast for the most up-to-date information.
Snow plows and ice control crews will be active during the weather event, however visibility will be reduced leading to unsafe driving conditions. Motorists are reminded to slow down and drive to conditions, and to check NL 511 via the mobile app, or call 511 for driving conditions in your area.
Municipalities and local service districts should ensure appropriate provisions are made for the delivery of services during severe weather events.
