Dear Old Man Winter: Stop! Enough already!

St. Stephen – The celebration with Shubenacadie Sam and thoughts of an early spring has been short lived here in Charlotte County after Environment Canada issued another weather warning today for New Brunswick.

Intermittent snow is expected through the day today gradually changing to rain after noon time in southern areas of the province because of southerly winds. Those winds will help temperatures rise about freezing. The milder temperatures will cause rapid snow melt.

Rain may be at times heavy overnight along the Fundy coast. Localized flooding in low-lying areas is possible with the forecast of up to 60 mm of rain combined with the snow melt.

The rain will end Monday and the region will see a return to colder air.

Meteorologists are tracking another system heading this way bringing with it snow for Thursday.
