Toronto, Apr 3 (Canadian-Media): According to Environment Canada the weather system due to hit the island of Newfoundland & Labrador (NL) on Monday had got worse, media reports said.
Blizzard warnings had been issued by Environment Canada for almost the entire NL, with gusty northerly winds 80 km/h in most areas and 100 km/h along the coast, and reduced visibility due to heavy snowfall, CBCNews reports said.
Environment Canada said the northeasterly winds will keep the pack ice along northeast-facing coastlines with consequent increase of the building of ice pressure with the increase of winds.
Wind gusts are expected throughout most of the island with varying amounts of snowfall expected. There is a strong possibility 20 to 35 centimetres of snow in Terra Nova, Gander and the Green Bay-White Bay areas by Monday evening, Environment Canada’s reports said.
