Tropical-like rain and humidity

A slow moving low pressure system moved across the Maritimes last night and today drenching many parts of New Brunswick including Greater Moncton.

The system felt tropical-like bringing warm, humid air with the humidex making it feel close to 30.

Moncton 45 mm

Saint John 50 mm
