Winter may be just a couple days away but the first major snowfall of the season has dumped about 20 cm of heavy, wet snow on Greater Moncton in the last 24 hours.

Schools were closed today in Southeast New Brunswick and crews were doing their best to clear streets and sidewalks.

NB Power was also kept busy with thousands of power outages mostly in the Fredericton area where between 15 and 30 cm of snow fell depending on elevation.

Saint John had mostly rain from the storm system but did receive about 7 cm of snow.
