Put away your rubber boots — sunshine to start the week

After a cool and grey weekend New Brunswick will finally see the sun to start the work week with normal temperatures today and above normal temperatures tomorrow. 

"Today should be quite nice … with mainly sunny to a mix of sun and cloud across the Maritimes," said CBC meteorologist Brennan Allen.

However northern New Brunswick will continue to see weak northwest winds, holding temperatures in the mid single digits.

"The overnight period will present mainly clear skies as a ridge of high pressure moves over New Brunswick from the west. This will lead to some cold overnight lows in the north … near –10 C."

Allen said that will make way for a sunny Tuesday, with high temperatures above normal, between 8 C and 12 C.
