Thursday, May 29, 2014, 11:26 AM - As parts of the country face a severe thunderstorm risk and above seasonal temperatures, the summer-like weather seems to be dragging its heels across much of Atlantic Canada.

"After picking up bragging rights for the nicest May long weekend weather, cool and below seasonal temperatures have dominated parts of Atlantic Canada since then," says Weather Network meteorologist Dayna Vettese.

In fact, snow flurries were reported in St. John's, Newfoundland early Thursday.

"Temperatures dropped to the minus single digits in parts of Newfoundland's Interior Thursday morning and yes, SNOW was falling," Vettese says.

With only days left until the start of June, snow at this time may come as a surprise (or just an welcomed visitor).

On this day in 1954 however, the city of St. John's picked up 6.6 cm of snow.

"Unfortunately, the long range forecast isn't hopeful in Atlantic Canada either," Vettese adds. "Temperatures will remain seasonal and even unseasonably cool with no big warm up in store over the next five days."
