The fall mild trend continued in October in Greater Moncton.

The average temperature for the month was about 2.1 C above the 30-year-average but while it was warm it wasn’t necessarily sunny. 

Much of the month saw cloudy or overcast days the sun seldom appeared for an entire day.

While rainfall was average, slightly more than half of October’s total fell on one day (the 31st) when 51 mm came down thanks to the remnants of Hurricane Sandy.
