Temperatures continue to warm up on Tuesday, with showers on the way

It's going to be a warm day across most of the province, but some New Brunswickers might want to keep their umbrellas nearby.

Temperatures will be climbing into the teens throughout most of the province today, but clouds are expected to increase from west to east across the Maritimes. This will cause showers or light rain across northern New Brunswick.

A special weather statement has been issued by Environment Canada for the northern part of the province.

"A low pressure system approaching from the west will stall over New Brunswick giving periods of rain to New Brunswick overnight and on Wednesday," said the weather statement.

"Over northeastern portions of the province, some areas may see an extended period of freezing rain tomorrow. By noon Wednesday, any areas receiving freezing rain should change to rain as temperatures rise above the freezing mark."

Meanwhile, temperatures are expected to drop back down to the single digits throughout the rest of the week.
