Snowblowers and shovels are out in force as between 25 and 30 cm of snow blanketed the Avalon Peninsula last night and overnight, forcing schools and government to delay opening by two or three hours. The airport had about 27 cm of the fluffy stuff while Clarenville and Bonavista got about 20.

PAL Airlines and Aerospace meteorologist Brian Walsh says there will be another 5-10 tomorrow afternoon on the Avalon and Burin, and about 5 cm in Clarenville.
Flights at St. John’s International are messed up as planes couldn’t get in last night. The TCH eastbound at the Foxtrap Access was closed for several hours after two tractor trailers jack-knifed, but the highway has since reopened.
Walsh says next week will be cold, so the snow will hang around.
