ST. JOHN'S, N.L. — It may be summer, but snow is falling in parts of Newfoundland today.
The province's Transportation Department is warning residents to drive cautiously and has tweeted a photo of a road in Burgeo, N.L., covered in a thin layer of snow.
Snow plows are operating on highways on the west coast and in central Newfoundland. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution due to slippery driving conditions.

Environment Canada says the temperature was hovering around the freezing mark in some areas.
But it doesn't appear the snow will be sticking around.
The national weather forecaster has issued rainfall warnings for eastern and central parts of Newfoundland, where between 40 and 70 millimetres of rain could fall by Tuesday evening.
