Forecasters say a warm air mass over the Maritimes responsible for record highs over the past couple days is being held in place by the approaching Hurricane Gonzalo.

Greater Moncton set a new record high of 23.7 C for 15 October beating the old record of 21.7 C from 1943.

Although expected to have little impact on New Brunswick, Gonzalo may brush eastern Nova Scotia and eastern Newfoundland as a strong post-tropical storm this weekend.

In the meantime, the Category 3 storm is expected to hit the tiny British territory of Bermuda by mid-Friday.
