July 2011 – Warm and wet

Typical July storm clouds near Moncton, 23 July 2011 (TWN)

Southeast New Brunswick had its fair share of severe weather this month – thunderstorms with heavy rain, sudden gusty winds and even hail in some isolated areas.

The heavy weather caused power outages and property damage but no injuries reported.

All of this led to a moist but mild July in Greater Moncton with above normal rainfall (almost twice as much as usual) and slightly above normal temperatures.
