After a warm and sunny July in Southeast New Brunswick, August was a definite disappointment with cool and unsettled conditions for a large part of the month.
Daytime highs were warm and above normal at the beginning and near the end of August but there was an extended period with cool, cloudy days and mild nights.
Although it often seemed wet, there were only three noteworthy rain events and overall precipitation was just slightly above average.
