Why so cold and damp in eastern N.B.?

For the fourth day in a row, it has felt more like March than May in Greater Moncton as temperatures struggle to reach 10°C and tomorrow may be no different.

The big question is why are we so cold and damp in Atlantic Canada while most of the rest of the country is enjoying more spring like conditions?

A low pressure system, which was swirling off the Maritimes and is now stalled south of Newfoundland, keeps pulling winds from the north which continues to bring chilly conditions.

Environment Canada says temperatures should return to normal values by later this week.
