Wild weather!

At the height of the storm Moncton, 08 Dec 2011 (TWN)

The so-called “weather bomb” which entered New Brunswick almost as quickly as it exited yesterday, left behind record-breaking temperatures and almost hurricane-like wind gusts.

In Greater Moncton, wind gusts peaked at 81 km/h while the temperature, albeit briefly, climbed to 13.6 C (breaking the old record of  13.3 C from 1951) before quickly retreating to single digits.

The region recorded 25.0 mm of rain while areas to the north, including Bathurst, recorded 26.0 cm of snow.

Wind gusts were even higher in Nova Scotia with Halifax Stanfield Airport recording 104 km/h and Sydney at 111 km/h.
