    A cold front has sent temperatures plunging in the Maritimes a day after warm air settled into the region.

    Parts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia saw ice pellets Wednesday along with gusty winds. A few centimetres of snow accumulation is possible in northern Nova Scotia.

    In many places, Martime temps have dipped well below seasonal -- but it's a different story in Newfoundland, which is experiencing highs into the upper teens ahead of the cold front.

    Unfortunately, Newfoundland's mild weather will be short-lived.

    "A coastal system may impact Atlantic Canada, mainly Newfoundland, with snow and rain on Saturday," says Weather Network meteorologist Gina Ressler.

    "There is still some uncertainty with the strength and the track, but conditions will improve on Sunday." 

    Temperatures across Atlantic Canada will fall Wednesday evening, hovering near the freezing mark for parts of Newfoundland and well below freezing elsewhere, particularly in Nova Scotia.
