Peter Coade's weather synopsis
A trough of low pressure will be swinging across the region during the day today.
Temperatures – unlike yesterday's arctic chill - will moderate and be mild enough that the precipitation will be in the form of rain although it has already started as snow in some western communities of Nova Scotia and southwestern New Brunswick.
In the more northern communities of New Brunswick the precipitation will also start as snow before changing over to rain or a rain/snow mix later this afternoon, thus accumulations will be in the order of five to 10 cm.
There is also the likelihood of freezing rain in the communities north of Doaktown in the central/northern counties. Then in the wake of this disturbance a large area of high pressure moves in with sunshine and colder than normal temperatures for the latter part of the week – especially on Friday.
Although there are also indications of some showers and or flurries for the weekend. It looks like we will start next week on an unsettled weather note as well with more snow and rain moving in for the first part of the week.
