Winter makes surprise return

After record breaking summer-like heat last week, winter has made a reappearance in Southeast New Brunswick.

About 5 cm of snow fell in Greater Moncton today and it was whipped around by stong winds gusting to 55 km/h making it feel as cold as -17 (actual temperature about -7 C).

The wintry weather was generally confined to the shores of the Northumberland Strait which also included Prince Edward Island, northern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton.

Case in point… I drove west from Moncton to Fredericton this morning and the snowy weather quickly gave way to a clear sky.
