Another round of snow is set to hit Newfoundland with some areas seeing more than 10 cm through Sunday.

According to Environment Canada, a low developing east of Cape Hatteras will sweep northeastward over the Avalon Peninsula during the overnight hours.

Nearly 10 cm is expected to fall over the Avalon, while cities like St. John's could see more than 10 cm. By Sunday morning, the heavier snow will taper off into flurries.

In addition to the snow, wind chill warnings are in place for the Churchill Falls area, Labrador City and Wabush.

Wind chills could feel like -46 to -51C by Sunday morning. When conditions get this frigid, frostbite can happen in mere minutes, so make sure to protect yourself before you venture outdoors.

Newfoundland has been hit with an extremely active and harsh winter. Severe snow and strong winds lashed the province over a week ago, dumping nearly 31 cm on Gander and 30 cm on Deer Lake. Substantial snow totals were also recorded in St. John's.
