It felt more like summer this weekend for much of eastern Canada.

In fact, Rob Davis, a meteorologist at The Weather Network said the temperatures that were experienced were more typical for Canada Day. The average being around 25°C for the July 1st holiday.

The above seasonal temperatures extended from Ontario through to the Maritimes. Fredericton took the top spot with a balmy 29°C on Sunday.

The warm temperatures are thanks to a nice ridge in the jet stream said Dayna Vettese, another meteorologist here at The Weather Network.

“We were spoiled,” said Vettese of the terrific Thanksgiving weather gracing most of the country.

Most areas saw another nice day on Tuesday with sunny skies and above seasonal temperatures.

The favourable conditions however, are gone for now.

“There is a change in the pattern,” explained Vettese. “A low pressure system that's making its way into the area will bring unsettled conditions for the rest of the week. It will be fairly cloudy, with rain on and off-- the opposite of what we just saw for Ontario, Québec and the Maritimes.”

The unsettled conditions are expected to stick around right until Saturday. The temperature will cool down, and hover around seasonal.
