March in Greater Moncton proved as cold as February especially the first half of the month. Many overnight lows continued to fall into minus double digit territory.
Snow was relatively light except for the season’s biggest storm at month’s end. But it continued to pile up because the cold prevented a great deal of melting. Rain was also noticeably scant during the month.
Oddly enough, March not only came in like a lion in went out like one as well.
