A low pressure system is forecast to form over the southeastern United States and track northeastward toward Newfoundland on Friday.
Current forecast guidance indicates the low could track anywhere between the Burin Peninsula and southeast of Cape Race overnight Friday or Saturday morning. A more western track would result in heavy snow over Central and Northeastern Newfoundland later Friday into Saturday with snow changing to rain over Eastern Newfoundland. However, a more eastern track would result in heavier snow over Eastern Newfoundland with no changeover to rain.
While it is too early to predict the snowfall amounts, it is likely for heavy snow, high winds, and blowing snow to accompany this system, especially in areas northwest of its track.
THE ANALOGS ALSO ARE ONBOARD AND DO NOT PAINT A PRETTY PICTURE. HAVE THOSE SEVERE WEATHER PLANS REVIEWED BY NEXT WEEK. THERE WILL BE A THREAT OF TORNADOES...LARGE HAIL...AND DAMAGING STRAIGHT LINE WINDS WITH THIS SYSTEM ON TUESDAY AND TUESDAY NIGHT. MORE SPECIFICS WILL BE TARGETED AS WE APPROACH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
