Moncton and Halifax are only 250 kilometres apart but as you can see by the photos above precipitation during winter storms can vary considerably.

Situated on the Atlantic coast, Halifax owes its slightly milder winter temperatures to the sea and just a few degrees Celsius can mean the difference between rain or snow.

Moncton is close to both the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of St. Lawrence which puts the city in a snow belt with passing storms often drawing moisture from both bodies of water.
