WATCH BELOW: SHIFTING SYSTEMS
There's still a few flakes to fall in parts of Atlantic Canada, largely confined to coastal areas of Newfoundland and Cape Breton.
Sea-effect snow is likeliest in western Newfoundland, lasting through Monday with local amounts of 10-20 cm.
In the Maritimes, snow squall watches remained in effect for Cape Breton and eastern Nova Scotia, along with parts of Prince Edward Island.
"A cold northwest wind blowing over the open waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence will maintain conditions that are favourable for the development of snow squalls. Conditions are expected to improve this afternoon in Pictou and Antigonish counties, and this evening in western and northern Cape Breton," Environment Canada says.
In Newfoundland, a stiff west wind will bring gusts in the 70-80 km/h range along the coasts, making for poor visibility due to blowing snow for areas that experience snow squalls.
Below seasonal temperatures persist as well, lasting into the coming week.
