Here comes the rain!

In Southeast New Brunswick, we have waited almost the entire summer for a decent rainfall and it finally came today!

Environment Canada posted rainfall warning for virtually the entire province today as the remnants of Hurricane Isaac merged with a low pressure system to create a big downpour.

As much as 90 mm of rain was expected to fall in some areas which would surpass rainfall totals for July and August combined.

Some minor localized flooding was reported especially in Saint John and along the Fundy coast.

RAINFALL TOTALS, 05 Sept 2012

Moncton  64.6 mm (beats old record of 31.0 mm from 1966)

Saint John  107.7 mm (beats old record of 27.6 mm from 1988)
