A messy system is slowly moving out of Atlantic Canada, leaving breezy, but fair conditions behind it.

Monday will also be pleasant across the region, with mild temperatures and calm winds, but Tuesday won't be.

"The next system to watch will run from Tuesday to Wednesday," Weather Network meteorologist Matt Grinter said Sunday. "This will be mainly a rain event, with slight mixing in northern New Brunswick and Newfoundland before switching to rain."

The Maritime provinces were basking in temperatures either at, or slightly below, seasonal, the day after after the system brought rain and freezing rain to Nova Scotia, and snow to New Brunswick, as well as very stiff winds gusting past 100 km/h in some cases.

In Newfoundland, the skies were full of a messy mix of precipitation Sunday morning, slowly changing over to rain and clearing late afternoon.

Parts of the Northern Peninsula picked up 5-10 cm of additional snow through the morning, while eastern Newfoundland is due to see less than 5 mm of rain as the day wears on.

As for the system brewing for next week, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for the Maritimes, as strong winds and heavy rain is expected Tuesday into Wednesday.
