If you live in Labrador City, chances are you got your snow shovel out of storage this past weekend. About 10 cm of snow fell on Monday, leaving some streets looking more like a winter wonderland than anything else.
“It was all thanks to a low spinning over Labrador, which brought cold temperatures and precipitation to the province,” says Michelle Cassar, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
More snow fell on Tuesday, and that may not be the end of it. A Nor'Easter is set to charge towards Atlantic Canada, and it has the potential to give Labrador City another light dusting.
“At this point, it's mainly looking like mixed precipitation for Labrador, but we're not ruling out snow just yet,” says Mark Robinson, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
While the snow in Labrador has been impressive, it's not the first province to get an early taste of winter this year.
Snow blanketed the Yukon earlier in the Fall season, and Calgary was hit with a heavy shot of snow in September.
