A frontal system moving into the Maritimes Sunday will bring rain and the risk of thunderstorms across the provinces, with some having the potential to become severe in New Brunswick and parts of northern Nova Scotia (north of Halifax). Severe thunderstorm watches are in place for the former. The potential threats from these storms include strong or damaging wind gusts, small hail and heavy rainfall.
Showers from the system will reach Newfoundland overnight into early Monday morning and by the afternoon in the Avalon.
