Warmer temperatures just in time for the weekend

Warmer weather is on the way but don't get too excited, a chance of flurries still remains.

Brennan Allen, a CBC meteorologist says temperatures are expected to increase by 10 degrees just in time for the weekend.

"Temperatures will be much warmer than yesterday thanks to a southerly wind," said Allen.

But with warmer temperatures comes a mass of clouds that will bring with them a chance of flurries that will go into Friday evening.

With temperatures near 0 C, Allen expects flurries to clear from west to east overnight.

"Saturday looks to be a mix of sun and cloud to sunny skies across much of New Brunswick," said Allen.
