The chance of rain showers lessens Sunday, but our skies will remain cloudy. The snow changes to rain near noon on the Southern Shore, and by 2:00 p.m. elsewhere on the Avalon.
PAL Airlines and Aerospace Meteorologist Brian Walsh says the first system arrives Saturday, with snow starting in the morning before turning to rain in the afternoon for Central and Eastern Newfoundland. Be patient! We could see high temps reach the low 50s mid and late next week.
Today, after a sunny start, clouds will increase during the afternoon.
Saturday, it will be sunny with a high of 38, the weather service said, and a north wind of 3 to 7 miles per hour, the weather service said. High near 22. East breeze 5 to 15 miles an hour. A few locations certainly to the south might be able to get to 60 degrees. Widespread travel problems are not expected, as most snow will melt on asphalt or concrete that retains warmth.
"High pressure over the area will move offshore today as a strong cold front approaches the area", according to the statement".
As a rainy, low-pressure system draws cold air from the north, light snow or sleet could fall in the northern Piedmont, according to the weather service.
The highest snowfall total reported in the region Thursday was 2 inches in Devils Lake.
Saturday will be mostly sunny with a high near 42 and a brisk north wind of 8-11 miles per hour.
Thursday night, there is a slight chance of snow and a low temperature in the mid- to upper 20s. There was plenty of sunshine during the afternoon, but highs were chilly, ranging through the 30s.
NWS is also forecasting that southeast Missouri is likely to see a wintery mix of precipitation and possibly a little bit of accumulating snow, as well. The April sun should take care of any snow or ice on roads by 11 a.m. Sunday. "We are ready. If we get some bad weather the trucks will be ready and the guys will be ready to go".
TUESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy skies and cold temperatures continue, with a low of 32 degrees. We still have plenty of time to watch this for you. We still look to dodge a bullet for Saturday. Expect mostly sunny skies but highs struggling, only in the lower 40's!
