After the downpours we’ve had this summer in Greater Moncton, I never thought I’d say that we need rain but we do!

We had a bit of rain today but the last time we had significant rain was 09 August – more than two weeks ago.

Environment Canada says the next best chance for rain is Thursday.

With only a week left in August, Moncton is sitting at about 47 mm of rain with the monthly normal at about 80 mm.
