Greater Moncton was dull and dismal throughout May thanks to a lingering low pressure system off Nova Scotia which didn’t want to move away from the region.
Rain, drizzle, and fog were common and when they weren’t, the sky was mostly cloudy.
Although temperatures were cool (especially at mid-month with a string of single digit highs) and precipitation was well above normal, no records were set during the month.
Warmer weather at month’s end helped boost the average overall temperature for May.
