Record warmth in NB

My thermometer in NE Moncton reads 22 C, 12 Nov 2012 (Dearing photo)

It felt more like September than November in Greater Moncton today when the thermometer climbed to 18.1 C beating the old record of 17.3 from 1984.

The warmest spot in the province was Fredericton at 19.8 C eclipsing 17.9 C from 1995.

Environment Canada says other records fell in Bouctouche at 19.3 C and Point Lepreau at 15.7 C.

Some hit the beach (although the water was too cold for a swim) while others decided it was a good day to put up Christmas lights and decorations.

To put things in perspective, our friends in the West are shivering with a high in Regina, SK today of only -9.6 C!
