Batten down your hatches​ and clear out your rain gutters, warns CBC meteorologist Peter Coade, Monday is shaping up to be a windy and wet day across the Maritimes.

Some spots can expect up to 40 millimetres, with the possibility of some localized flooding, and winds gusting up to 80 kilometres an hour.

"A greater concern would be the wind," Coade said.

"That could have an effect on the ferry service, the Nova Scotia-Newfoundland ferry service, the Bay of Fundy ferry service and the airports as well. The Confederation Bridge has already put out a notice for high-sided vehicles coming down on transportation tomorrow," Coade said.

Coade said once the storm moves through this week, Maritimers can expect colder temperatures on Thursday and Friday.

"Some Arctic air moving in," said Coade.
