New Brunswick is experiencing its warmest day so far this year and at least eight record highs have been broken.

Environment Canada says the Greater Moncton International Airport broke a record today at 30.8°C beating the old high of 29.3°C from 1999.

Kouchibouguac, Alma, Saint John and Caraquet were among the places with new record highs today.

The hotspot in the province was Fredericton at 32.7°C.

The excessive warmth is due to a dome of high pressure working its way to the Maritimes from down in the Gulf of Mexico.
