Icy conditions close some NB schools

A coating of freezing rain quickly followed by rain made for icy road conditions this morning across Southern New Brunswick.

As a result, many school districts either cancelled classes for the day or announced that buses would be one or two hours late.

The slippery roads are being blamed in a fatal collision early today on Nova Scotia’s Cobequid Pass involving two transport trucks.

By midday, temperatures had climbed to as high as 10.7 C in Greater Moncton and some communities came close to breaking records.
