After weeks of green and little snow in December, Greater Moncton managed to have a White Christmas afterall.
From Friday 23 December to Saturday 24 December, about 12 cm of snow fell over the region.
Since temperatures were especially cold due to an Arctic high pressure system which moved in afterward (dipping to -19.9 C), the snow had no chance of melting.
As per the map above, much of Canada had a White Christmas with the exceptions being Southern Ontario, southern Prairies and the West Coast.
However, Environment Canada is forecasting plenty of rain and mild temperatures for mid-week in Greater Moncton which means the snow may not stick around for New Year’s.
