Eastern Newfoundland flows out of the snow blanket

The batteries in East Newfoundland have won their first best snow-boiling evening show after a thick snow cover covered the region during the night.

At 6:15 a.m. Friday morning, 25 cm met the metroregion of St. John.

Gander was hit with about 12 cm.

"The worst thing is done … basically, this is a bit about this morning", Allison Sheppard, a meteorologist at Environment Canada's Gander Weather Office, told San Juan Morning Show.

Although most of the snow fell all night, she said that it could still be 5-10 cm coming during the weekend.

"If you were not in the winter spirit, I suppose the snow could help," she said.

Winds will no longer catch the day, she said, shaking snow less worrying.

Late schools, red roads

Courts, government offices and all schools in the metro zone of St. John had a late opening.

Some flights at the San Juan International Airport were canceled or late and snowballs were grown up in the metro zone of St. John.

Police warned drivers to take care of the roads.

Holyrood RCMP said two tractors were in the eastern territory of the Trans-Canada Highway on Friday morning, east of the Holyrood Access Road, making the road temporarily incredible at the Foxtrap Access Road.

Snow began to fall in St. John's around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, because weather system swept across the island.

Closures began early on Thursday, with Paradise and Mount Pearl, canceling waste collection and closing all urban facilities before snow.
