June snow storm hits Newfoundland

- In a scene that is probably more appropriate for Dec. 26 than June 26, snow is falling in Newfoundland, Canada.  The snow was even sticking to roads at temperatures hovered near the freezing mark.

Snow plows were actually out on highways on the west coast and in central Newfoundland and drivers were advised to use extreme caution due to slippery driving conditions.

More than an inch of summer snow was expected to fall in some areas.  The unusual weather was blamed on an arctic air mass that dipped south along with moisture as warmer weather pushed north into central Canada.
