There's little rest for the weather-weary ahead this week in Atlantic Canada. Another series of storms takes aim on the region as low pressure systems continue trekking up the coast, with active weather running the gamut from heavy rain to heavy snow this week. While the early-week system will be milder in nature -- both in temperature and in strength -- by mid-week we're looking at another heavy-hitter sweeping up the coast. We take a look at who's in line for another round of heavy snow, and whether or not we'll be looking at another round of wicked winds, below.

WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Active storm track continues this week
  • Early week storm looks warmer/rainier, followed by colder/snowier system
  • Gusty winds, but not expected to be damaging wind storms

WARMER START -- WEAKER SYSTEM

The leading edge of our early-week disturbance begins sliding into the southern Maritimes on Monday, and with this low set to track closer to the Bay of Fundy, we're looking at warmer air being pulled further west. That means more rain for most, particularly over Nova Scotia and the Fundy Shores of New Brunswick. The bulk of this wave pushes in overnight Monday into Tuesday, when some locally heavy rain is expected for parts of Nova Scotia in particular.

Further west, where the cold air stays entrenched, we're looking at another round of snow for central New Brunswick, western P.E.I., and extreme western Newfoundland.

MESSIER MID-WEEK -- SNOW AND WIND

The second, stronger  system is set to track in right on the heels of the first, with a low pressure centre sweeping out of New England and strengthening rapidly as it heads into the southern Maritimes later on Tuesday. The track of this next system will depend to some extent on the exact path of the first, but at present signs are good that it will edge further east than its predecessor. And that's bad news if you were hoping for a break from the snow.

With a track further to the east, expect colder air to be pulled down from Quebec and Labrador, and that means more snow than rain into the eastern Maritimes. And with the low forecast to intensify rapidly, that means we're looking at another round of biting winds as it races past on Wednesday, although, at present, they're not expected to be as vicious as those Newfoundland faced last week.

This will be a story to watch as we head toward mid-week; stick with us here at The Weather Network for the latest updates on your forecast.
