Parts of central and eastern Canada have been feeling more like summer recently.

On Tuesday, three places in Newfoundland shattered all-time records for the month of May.

In St. John's the temperature hit 26.4 degrees shattering the previous May high of 25.6 set in 1971.

Records were also broken in Cartwright and Gander where the temperature rose to 31 degrees Tuesday afternoon.

Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, says the blast of heat was pretty short lived.

"A cold front will be arriving throughout Atlantic Canada Wednesday afternoon and will bring temperatures back to seasonal for the rest of the week."
