Public Advisory: Adverse Weather Conditions Anticipated

The Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment is monitoring Environment and Climate Change Canada weather forecast information on post-tropical system Michael, which is tracking southeast of the province. Rainfall warnings are a possibility for the Burin and Avalon Peninsulas as rain is forecast to begin Friday afternoon. High breaking waves and large swell waves may affect the south and east coasts of the island as the system passes on Saturday. As a safety precaution, the public is advised to keep away from the shoreline.
