It may seem early for most of the province but Environment Canada has issued a frost advisory for all of New Brunswick except the Fundy Coast.

A clear sky and cool conditions will allow temperatures to dip as low as 2 C in Greater Moncton.

Gardeners are being advised to cover tender plants overnight.

The average date for the first frost of fall in Moncton is September 27.

Yesterday in Calgary it was sunny and 26 C.

Less than 24 hours later, it was snowing and below freezing.

At least 5 cm of snow fell over parts of the city creating traffic headaches as drivers adjusted to the icy road conditions.

But the long term forecast is calling for a return to warmer weather by late week.

Summer heat eases

650x366_09070801_hd6When a front moved across the Maritimes last night, it ushered in much cooler air than the last few days and most likely the last real summer heat of 2014.

In Greater Moncton yesterday, the thermometer climbed to 28.9 C and the hot spot in New Brunswick was 30.9 C in Fredericton.

A much different story today, although still pleasant, as daytime highs barely got into the low 20s Celsius throughout the province.

Several centimetres of snow fell today in southwestern Alberta, mainly in the foothills of the Rockies and other higher elevations.

Ski resorts were definitely excited about the fresh powder with many posting snow pictures on social media.

With slightly higher temperatures, Calgary managed to escape the snow and it rained instead.

Forecasters say warmer weather is on the way for the weekend.
