As Atlantic Canadians continue to clean up from the latest blast of snow, multiple systems target the region once again this week.

"The area won't really see much of a break from winter over the next several days," says Weather Network meteorologist Gina Ressler.

Most places can expect a fair day on Tuesday, before another system takes aim at the region.

The same storm that slowed Ontario's Tuesday morning commute will bring more snow to parts of the Atlantic provinces through Wednesday.

"This next system pushes into Nova Scotia Tuesday night, bringing snow to the Yarmouth area and then spreading to Halifax through the overnight," adds Matt Grinter, another meteorologist at The Weather Network. "The snow will clear out of Nova Scotia Wednesday morning with a general 5-10 cm expected in many areas."

Then on Thursday, an even stronger system could bring upwards of 10 cm of snow to some places.

"Some areas may even see locally higher amounts of 15 cm pile up," Ressler says. 

And that's not the end of it.

"We're keeping an eye on yet another late week messy system in Ontario, which is likely to impact Atlantic Canada as well," adds Ressler. "We're currently in a pattern where we're seeing multiple systems roll through the country."
