Winter Storm Warning for Burgeo - Ramea
Environment Canada has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Burgeo - Ramea.
Snow, at times heavy, and strong southeasterly winds gusting to 100 km/h will combine to give near zero visibility in blowing snow today. Snow will change to rain along the coast this afternoon. However, the snow is expected to last longer over higher terrain. Therefore, conditions will not significantly improve over the Burgeo Highway until early this evening when the snow changes to rain.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Winter driving conditions can be expected. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. The hazardous conditions could impact commutes through the entire warning period. Power lines could be impacted by the persistent moderate to heavy snowfall rates.
