October heatwave!

Centennial Park, Moncton, NB, 10 Oct 2011 (Facebook)

The heat that enveloped the West last week finally made its way East in time for Thanksgiving weekend.

Moncton set a new high of 26.9 C on Sunday beating the former record of 23.7 C from 2006.

The hotspots on Sunday were Fredericton and Bathurst which both hit 28.7 C, new records for October 9.

Temperatures were not quite as warm today but still about 5 to 7 degrees C above normal for October.
