The same storm that pummeled the northeastern United States this week is now sweeping across Newfoundland.
It's not dumping as much snow, but it IS making for some messy driving conditions. The Avalon Peninsula was hit with a few hours of freezing rain yesterday. As a result, the roads have been slick.
'This is one of these very messy systems the east coast can get at this time of year,' says Weather Network Meteorologist Mark Robinson. 'It's kind of a never-ending mix of rain, snow and freezing rain. Combined with powerful winds, this type of system can easily bring down trees and powerlines.'
This latest system comes as many Newfoundlanders are still cleaning up from LAST week's storm. That system damaged buildings, along with two historical sites in St. John's.
For now, the worst is over for the Avalon Peninsula. But this low will continue spinning throughout the day, and could retrograde all the way back to Ontario. The result will be some scattered flurries for Sunday.
