  • Marine Atlantic Scrubs Ferry Service Due to Poor Weather

    Marine Atlantic has scrubbed ferry service once again because of high winds in the Gulf—and the interruption may continue into tomorrow.

    Most crossings this week have been called off, and there’ll be nothing moving until tomorrow at the earliest. Even the lunchtime sailings tomorrow may be in jeopardy as winds continue to pound the area.

    Forecasters are expecting winds to be over 150 km/h in the Wreckhouse today before easing back somewhat tonight and tomorrow.

    The winds have combined with snow to make for slippery roads and poor visibility in some areas, including the Avalon, the southern strip of the island, and Clarenville to Gander.

    Less than 10 cm is forecast, and it will actually turn to rain in most areas. There will be a period of dry weather tonight before the rain returns tomorrow with warm temperatures, meaning significant snowmelt for some regions.

    Southern areas will get about 25 mm while the metro region can expect about 10-15 mm.
