The snowbanks kept getting higher and higher in Greater Moncton during February thanks to several snowfalls including a blizzard which dropped 40 percent of the month’s total.

Both rain and snow totals were well above average during the month.

Daytime highs were not as mild as in January but overnight lows were not as cold either.
