April 5, 2011 — A stormy system that swept into Atlantic Canada on Monday brought snow, rain and exceptionally high winds.

The same storm system that hit southern Ontario on Sunday, moved into the Atlantic provinces by the afternoon hours on Monday.

It brought with it snow and rain, which resulted in messy conditions on the roads. Fierce winds accompanied the storm as well. Gusts of up to 110 km/h blew in some places in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

The good news was that any snow that did fall didn't stick around for long.

“The region will get up to 5 cm of snow, but this will be washed away by rain shortly afterwards,” says Gerald Cheng, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.

A mix of rain and sun persisted for most of the day on Tuesday. Many areas will see temperatures climb into the double digits Wednesday.
