Deep snow in Mount Pearl, NL, 21 April 2016 (TWN)


A powerful storm system missed the Maritimes but nailed Newfoundland with strong winds and heavy snow.

St. John’s was especially hard hit with 10 hours of blizzard conditions delivering 49 cm of snow and wind gusts of more than 100 km/h.

This was the heaviest snowfall in the provincial capital this season and exceeds an average April snowfall of 25 cm.
