Below seasonal temperatures linger, as rain makes its way to the Maritimes

The calender may say spring, but it's not quite feeling that way for parts of the East Coast. 

In Newfoundland, east-northeasterly brought cooler conditions to the northern shores Sunday, with on-and-off showers throughout the day. 

"Things were quite cool overnight," said Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon. "In fact, some areas in the north even saw some mixing as a result."

Sunday night into Monday, an off-shore low will skim the Avalon, bringing the chance of mixed precipitation to the region. Winds will be gusting to near 70 km/h as well.

Meanwhile, across the Maritimes, temperatures are below seasonal and will remain so throughout the week. 

"A weak disturbance from central Quebec, will be sliding through the Maritimes on Monday," adds Dillon. "This system will bring scattered rain showers and possibly an embedded thunderstorm to western New Brunswick."
