Blue Jay in Moncton after storm, 22 Jan 11 (TWN)

Greater Moncton is digging out again after another mixed bag of precipitation (the second in as many days) hit the region yesterday.

The fast moving Nor’easter was also dubbed a ‘weather bomb’ due to its intensity.

Greater Moncton had 13.4 mm of precipitation most of which fell as snow but also rain and at least one hour of freezing rain.

Bathurst received 21 cm of snow while Saint John had a mix of rain and snow with 13 mm of precipitation reported.
