Environment Canada has issued freezing rain warnings for all the Avalon Peninsula, Clarenville, Bonavista Peninsula and Terra Nova region this morning.
It says freezing rain is expected or occurring and will continue for the next few hours, especially over higher terrain, before precipitation changes to rain this morning.
Rain is then expected to taper off to flurries later this morning as temperatures fall back below 0 Celsius.
Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery.
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice buildup and icy surfaces.
The public is advised to continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to weatherNLWO@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #NLwx.
Summary of Tuesday's storm
Environment Canada has prepared a summary of Tuesday's winter storm that affected the entire island.
Here's the full summary it posted on its website this morning:
A low pressure centre formed off the coast of Florida on Saturday night and intensified into a very powerful ocean storm as it passed east of the Carolinas on Sunday night. The low then gradually weakened as it continued tracking northeastward, its centre reaching the Fortune Bay area of Newfoundland late Tuesday.
The feature finally dissipated over eastern Newfoundland early this morning.
This system brought snow and strong winds to much of Newfoundland, though the snow later changed to a mix of ice pellets, freezing rain and rain over eastern parts of the island before ending.
