A low pressure system moved into the Maritimes early Monday morning. Periods of rain will hit most parts of New Brunswick Monday and stretch into the evening hours.

Currently, itís unclear how much rain New Brunswick will receive. But Environment Canada has predicted up to 50 mm in southern New Brunswick before the rain ends tonight.

“Everyone in the Maritimes will see a lot of rain,” says Rob Davis, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. “Most of the rain should end by Monday night. However, eastern portions of the Maritimes should see rain through Tuesday.”

All of mainland Nova Scotia is currently under a rainfall warning. Environment Canada issues a warning when a significant amount of rainfall is expected. Itís not clear which areas in Nova Scotia will get an accumulation of more than 50 mm. As of right now, 40 to 60 mm are forecast for mainland Nova Scotia and lesser amounts are expected for Cape Breton.

Things should clear up when Tuesday rolls around.
