The warmest temperatures in three months (since early December) led to rapid snow melt in Greater Moncton today. 

Records fell in numerous communities as the temperature climbed to almost 19.0 C in Fredericton and Kouchibouguac – the hotspots in Canada. 

Greater Moncton Airport recorded a high of 14.0 C this afternoon beating the old record of 13.5 C from 1995. 

In Nova Scotia, the highest temperature was recorded at Ingonish Beach with 17.9 C.
