Winter storm to hit Central in next few hours
According to Environment Canada, a winter storm warning is headed to Central Newfoundland on Wednesday evening, heading into Thursday.
The weather office says "Heavy snow, strong winds and blowing snow are expected to develop today or tonight. Snowfall accumulations ranging between 15 and 40 centimetres are expected by Thursday morning."
The storm is a result of a deepening low pressure system which will move towards the region from just southwest of Nova Scotia. It brings with it, major snowfall and high winds, which will result in poor visibility conditions in some areas.
Winds are expected to reach up to 110 km/h overnight.
Environment Canada also warns that "higher than normal water levels are expected during the high tide Thursday morning between Green Bay and Cape Freels so minor coastal flooding is possible."
