Spring is well underway, but for people living in northern New Brunswick the weather could look a little more wintery. The same system that's bringing milder temperatures and rain into much of southern Ontario could bring everything from snow to ice pellets and freezing rain to the region overnight.

Freezing rain warnings are in effect for much of the area including places like Bathurst, Edmundston, and Miramichi. Drivers in the region will want to use extra caution and beware of changing road conditions. The wintery weather should change over to rain as warmer air moves into the region by Wednesday morning.

In southern regions of the province, precipitation should remain as rain. Generally between 15 and 30 mm could fall by Wednesday in areas like Moncton and Fredericton.

If spring feels like it hasn't sprung yet this year that's because much of the country has seen wetter and cooler weather than normal through March and April.
