While most of the attention is on the end of June/beginning of July heat wave for the Eastern US and Canada, many across Newfoundland woke yesterday morning, Tuesday June 26th to a rare covering of ‘late June’ snow.

Latest measurable snow on record

Unfortunately for Gander residents, this has been a familiar sight this month. Remarkably, the 2cm of snow which fell at Gander Intl Airport was the 4th measurable snow this month and yesterday’s marked the latest ‘measurable’ snow since snow depth records began back in 1955.

Coldest day within astronomical summer on record

As well as the snow, Gander also observed a record low to commence the day.

Then it only warmed to 3.2C which is the coldest day within astronomical summer (June 20 through Sep 20).

The roads in and around Gander as well as other parts of Newfoundland resembled January 26 and not June 26.

The heat spreading ENE late this week will eventually reach Newfoundland late weekend into early next week.
