Issued at 05:30 Friday 19 April 2019

Summary

Rainfall, combined with melting snow, is expected. The frozen ground has a reduced ability to absorb this rainfall.

Showers or periods of rain are expected to return again later on Saturday and could persist well into next week giving significant amounts.

Special Weather Statement

Issued at 05:47 Friday 19 April 2019

Summary

Significant rainfall, mild temperatures, and snow melt are expected over the next several days. Rainfall warnings are already in effect for today into tonight for Corner Brook and Vicinity and Bay St. George. Refer to the warning itself for further details on this event. After the rainfall today, periods of rain are expected to return later Saturday or Saturday night and continue well into next week. While it is too early to predict exact rainfall amounts, forecast guidance is suggesting the potential for well in excess of 50 mm over the next few days, with the highest amounts likely over higher elevations. The rain will combine with mild temperatures to cause significant snowmelt and an increased potential for localized flooding. Further details will come in subsequent forecasts and updates. Should this scenario remain unchanged, rainfall warnings might need to be continued or expanded further up the West Coast of Newfoundland. ### Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
