I was expecting a snowy, windy and cold snow day


Most Newfoundland and Labrador will ring the new year in relation to the winter elements.

The forecasts show an important amount of snow on the way to some parts of Newfoundland, while in the West Labrador there are extreme weather warnings.

It is a "fairly substantial winter storm," says Environment Meteorologist, Tabea Fiechter, who will start southwest Newfoundland and parts of the Labrador on Tuesday afternoon.

"This will extend to much of the region, it will arrive to St. John, basically, tomorrow night, and then it will continue until Wednesday and even Wednesday night," he said.

"We are seeing some snow, a good wind," he said.

Most of the island can expect snowfall between 15 and 25 centimeters, if time is kept up and running as it predicts on Monday morning.

The winds in the region of San Juan and the Avalon peninsula, on Monday night, will have 30 ratifications up to 50 km / h, which will make cold temperatures for the celebrations of any day.

But these temperatures are nothing compared to the extreme cold of the Labrador City and Wabush regions, where cooling values ​​of the wind accumulate -45 C and lower.

"Basically, in this type of temperatures, walk and walk at 5 km / h, you're pretty hitting the wind cooling criteria," said Fiechter.

Although the winter storm will make the gray on a New Year's day, Fiechter said that there is some sunlight, but only if he is a beginner or even late celebrating .

"Tomorrow morning, there could be a brief period where you see a bit of sun if you are well advanced", he said.
