Temperature records across New Brunswick were not just broken today – they were smashed!

Environment Canada says the current “heat wave” has recorded the highest readings ever in March in many areas.

At least ten communities in the province broke record highs today including the Greater Moncton Airport at 25.3 C, smashing the old record of 16.7 C from 1976.

The hotpsot in New Brunswick was St. Stephen at 27.7 C, slightly below Canada’s highest reading at Petawawa, Ontario¬†with 28.8 C.

The unbelievable March heat is expected to continue tomorrow when more records could fall.
