The weather continues to hammer Newfoundland and this is no april fools day joke

A slow-moving spring storm that continued unabated Tuesday shut down schools in St. John's and many other communities in eastern Newfoundland, with the southern half of the island feeling the brunt of the storm. 
Memorial University cancelled classes at its St. John's campus and the Newfoundland and Labrador government closed its offices in the metro region for at least the morning. 
The storm hit Newfoundland on Monday with enough force to close regional highways in the southwestern corner of the island. 
The storm moved east overnight, leaving about 20 cm of snow in St. John's and about 40 cm in St. Lawrence. 
CBC meteorologist Ryan Snoddon said the storm will rage through the day before winding down around midnight Tuesday. 
Quite a bit more snow is expected to fall by Wednesday morning, with regions told to brace for between 30 cm and 50 cm by the time the weather clears. Complicating forecasts is the probability that some areas will get ice pellets. 
Closures on Tuesday also involved the St. John's court system, some College of the North Atlantic campuses and numerous daycare centres.
