New Brunswick will enjoy a mostly sunny day today with high temperatures between –4 C and –6 C, says CBC meteorologist Peter Coade.

"A ridge of high pressure moving across the Maritimes today will ensure a sunny day without the wind of yesterday from our near miss," he said.

The nor'easter than slammed much of the eastern United States set snowfall records with some communities receiving more than 70 centimetres of snow.

Coade says on Tuesday and Wednesday, New Brunswick will see a moderate to strong southwest wind.

"That will bring in some pretty mild temperatures, well above the melting point in many communities," he said.

"We can also expect some showers on Tuesday into the overnight period with the colder air returning during the day on Wednesday," said Coade.
