Low pressure in the Canadian Maritimes will continue to move away this morning, allowing the pressure gradient across our region to weaken as high pressure briefly builds in. It will remain rather blustery and chilly, especially in the first part of the day, with plenty of sunshine giving way to some increasing clouds late. A frontal system will then approach the region on Tuesday with a chance of a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and rain, but it will be more of a nuisance with only light amounts expected.
