Record cold grips New Brunswick

It was very cold but not quite cold enough to break a new record in Greater Moncton this morning.

Environment Canada says the temperature plunged to -23.7°C at the airport but today’s record is actually -26.1°C from 1950.

However, at least six New Brunswick communities did set new record lows today as an Arctic air mass continues to grip the region.

Environment Canada says Bathurst set a new low of -33.4°C which breaks the old record of -27.5°C from 1995.

Other communities which recorded new lows today were Kouchibouguac, Bouctouche, Alma, Miscou Island and Point Lepreau.
