Environment Canada says March in New Brunswick has never been warmer.

Temperatures have soared into the mid-20’s Celsius this week smashing records that date back to the 1870’s.

Meteorologist Claude Cote says the heat is coming from the American South.

“Over the western part of the country we have this trough of low pressure, so there’s lots of southerly circulation east of the low pressure which is why it’s bringing hot, dry air from the southern American states,” notes Cote.

More record highs have already fallen today throughout New Brunswick.

But Cote adds a big change is on the way with a cold front moving in tonight and more seasonal temperatures tomorrow.
