For the first time since late May, the thermometer dropped below the freezing point in Greater Moncton this morning to -1.1 C.

Frost was widespread although hardier vegetation appears to have been spared.

For 2014, this means Greater Moncton had above freezing temperatures for 144 days which is slightly longer than the average growing season.

Precipitation remains below normal so far this autumn but that could change with Environment Canada predicting 50-100 mm of rain across New Brunswick over the next few days.
