From near record cold to near record warmth, January proved to be a real rollercoaster ride in Greater Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick.
In an unusual twist, much more rain fell during the month than snow which was a stark contrast to a very white December.
After all of the ups and downs, the overall monthly temperature was actually above normal and total precipitation was close to average.
