Here comes spring!

It wasn’t a typical winter in New Brunswick by any means – far less snow and warmer than average temperatures – but it’s still nice to welcome spring!

The vernal equinox officially arrived at 2:14 am ADT.

Day and night are now equal and the days will continue to lengthen until 20 June, the first day of summer.

Greater Moncton will welcome this day with a possible record high.

Environment Canada is forecasting a high of 21 C, which would break the old record of 13.4 C from 2010.

UPDATE – Greater Moncton Airport reached 21.0 C setting a new record for 20 March.
