“Newfoundlanders are going to be talking about this for a very, very long time,” a local meteorologist told The Post.

Cold seems to be the story this week with a large dome of high pressure taking over the eastern half of the nation.

After a day of mixed precipitation, a risk of icy spots exists in our outer northern suburbs through midnight.

Temperatures above freezing and gusty winds should keep icy patches to a minimum overnight.

Snow amounts should mostly range between a dusting and an inch while a light glaze of ice could fall on top of the snow in our colder areas.

It's not a big storm, but it doesn't take much snow and ice to be a problem.

Snow could fall along a 1,500-mile stretch from North Dakota to Boston.

The storm just underwent bombogenesis — and it's still strengthening.

Old man winter is finally making a comeback, just in time for the extended three-day weekend.

The Main Crater Lake within the Taal Volcano has disappeared.

Snow, sleet, and freezing rain are set to cause travel headaches tomorrow.

It's a bit of a rude awakening after the January we've had so far.

Precipitation amounts should be light, but it won't take much to cause slippery conditions, especially north and west of Washington.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms have erupted from Victoria to Queensland, with more storms on the way.

Winds could gust to 50 mph today. Snow changes to rain on Saturday, but an icier scenario needs to be watched for our colder areas.

We're starting to step back down into winter.

In most spots the snow won't be heavy, but a widespread plowable snowfall is in the cards across a 1,500-mile stretch of the country.

It also marked the second-warmest year ever. “What happens in the future is really up to us," said one scientist.

A new airborne campaign will be the first intensive study of East Coast snowstorms in 30 years.

The event is more likely to be a minor inconvenience than particularly disruptive. Colder areas into northern Maryland could see some significant effects.

We've got one more shot of mild air, while tomorrow is a bridge to more winter-like conditions. All eyes then turn to the weekend, with potential winter weather on tap.

We may try to make a run at 60 degrees tomorrow.

Although it will bring some relief to firefighters, the precipitation is unlikely to extinguish more than a few blazes.

A mix of snow, ice and rain is likely to make for a mess, especially in the colder northern and western parts of the region.
