Dry spell continues

Much of New Brunswick has been exceptionally dry this summer but August has proven to be very dry.

The unofficial rainfall total for Greater Moncton as of 24 August was a mere 23.4 mm which is less than one-third of the normal total monthly amount of 79.5 mm.

The water supply in most communities is still in good shape with the village of McAdam, NB being a notable exception.

Farmers would like to see rain but most are fairing reasonably well despite the dry conditions.
