Residents of Greater Moncton are cleaning up a messy mix of precipitation today after a nasty winter storm delivered 9 cm of snow, 34 mm of rain and a small amount of freezing rain.
The rain and melting snow led to scattered flooding throughout the city with many pedestrians choosing to walk in the streets instead of on wet, icy sidewalks.
Snowfall amounts were higher in northern New Brunswick with almost 50 cm recorded in Bathurst while rainfall was greatest in southern areas with Saint John reporting 40 mm.
The same system also delivered heavy snow to the American Northeast yesterday with 18 cm at Washington, DC (National Airport), 32 cm at New York City (Central Park) and more than 60 cm falling in the Appalachian Mountains from North Carolina to Vermont.
To make matters even worse, another storm is expected to follow a similar path this weekend with snow and blowing snow creating blizzard conditions.
