Remember last month in Southeast New Brunswick when warm and wet weather was the rule?

August 2011 had remarkedly similar weather and although it was wetter than normal, it was not quite as wet as July.

Temperatures were not extreme in either direction – the elusive maximum of 30 C was never reached while low temperatures seldom fell below 13 C.

Although August is typically the driest month of summer, this month proved the opposite with rainfall exceeding 13 mm on five separate days.
