Summer seemed to go by so fast in Southeast New Brunswick this year that it wanted to continue on quite nicely in September.
Environment Canada data shows that both temperatures and precipitation were above normal for the month.
Greater Moncton saw daytime highs in the 20s Celsius well into late month and although a number of overnight lows were pretty chilly, no frost was recorded in my NE Moncton neighbourhood.
