Many Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have come to expect a chilly May 24th weekend.
The famous song by Buddy Wassisname and the Other Fellers even references the “half inch of sloppy snow lying on the ground”, but still, we wish for warmer weather for the first long weekend of the camping season.
PAL Airlines and Aerospace meteorologist, Brian Walsh says some parts of the island experienced windchills well below zero today.
Some wet snow was witnessed in the metro region in the early afternoon.
Walsh says expect more of the same over the next few days. He says there’s no sign of prolonged warm weather in the forecast until close to the end of the month.
Wind chills are generally around -5 across Central and Eastern NL as we move into the lunch hour on May 19. While this isn't a surprise for the May long weekend, it doesn't make it any less gross. There's no sign of prolonged warmth until near the end of May #nlwx
