Winter arrives early in central Newfoundland

Newfoundland’s first major snowfall of the season started causing problems early Wednesday morning, keeping schools closed and causing slow and sloppy highway conditions in central parts of the island.

Gander had over 27 cm (almost a foot) of snow on the ground as of 7 a.m., according to Environment Canada meteorologist Rodney Barney, with plows in the town out before dawn clearing parking lots.

A swath of central Newfoundland stretching from Gander through the Terra Nova area, Clarenville and up through the Bonavista Peninsula remained under a snowfall warning, with snow tapering off into flurries by mid-morning.

Many schools in central Newfoundland delayed opening Wednesday morning.
