The first weekend of autumn felt more like summer across New Brunswick with record breaking heat in many communities.

Greater Moncton reached 28.0 C today which broke the previous record high of 25.0 C set in 1959.

Fredericton also broke a record from the same year with a high of 28.8 C.

Environment Canada says other records were broken at Bathurst reaching 28.7 C and Kouchibouguac at 28.8 C.

Miramichi and St.Stephen were the hot spots in Canada at 29.2 C.

I like many others headed to Aboiteau Beach today where even the water was warm.

But change is on the way with a cold front and showers for Monday lowering temperatures to normal and even slightly below normal before recovering on Tuesday.
