Spring rain at last !

After a dry winter and a rather dry spring to date, the rain is finally falling in Southeast New Brunswick.

Environment Canada has rain in the forecast for the entire week and some impressive totals have been recorded so far.

New records were set at Saint John Airport with 44.3 mm of rain yesterday and in Bathurst at 20.8 mm.

Greater Moncton officially recorded less than 5 mm but heavier showers fell overnight.

The same system has brought snow to parts of Southern Ontario, Quebec and the American Northeast.
