November can typically be a dull and chilly month in Southeast New Brunswick but this month it was a lot brighter thanks to more sunshine and less cloud than usual.
Daytime highs were quite warm and almost summer-like near mid-month but overnight lows were cold and especially frigid during the final few days of November.
Precipitation was below normal and what was remarkable was that there was no measurable snow in Greater Moncton during the month just a few flakes spotted here and there.
