A classic Nor’easter – the third winter storm in ten days – barrelled up the Atlantic coast yesterday bringing with it lots of snow and strong winds creating blizzard conditions.

Greater Moncton was hit with 24 cm of snow (at the airport) and as much 30 cm or more outside the city with winds gusting up to 80 km/h creating whiteouts.

Saint John actually set a new one-day snow record of 25.3 cm breaking the old record from 1962.

In the Kennebecasis Valley, there were unofficial reports of 46 cm of snow having fallen.
