A winter storm watch has been issued by Environment Canada for many areas of the province, including some snow tonight for most areas of the island, and high winds and heavy snow for Tuesday night for the Avalon and Burin peninsulas.

Environment Canada says a low pressure system will pass south of Newfoundland tonight and give snow to most areas.
The snow will end Tuesday morning as the low moves out to sea. Snowfall amounts will range from five to 10 centimetres in the south to two centimetres in the north.
Meanwhile a second low pressure system will develop off Cape Hatteras early Tuesday then intensify as it passes southeast of the Avalon Peninsula on Wednesday. Snow associated with this low will begin over southeastern Newfoundland Tuesday evening then spread northward through the night.
Over the Avalon and Burin peninsulas the snow will be heavy at times and combined with strong winds will result in reduced visibility in blowing snow Tuesday night and Wednesday.
