Snow has been falling in much of New Brunswick since the beginning of this month and today in Greater Moncton it accumulated for the first time this season.

The temperature hovered near freezing as a low pressure system moved up the Atlantic coast bringing snow by mid-morning and it continued until early evening with about 12 cm in total.

Although the snow accumulated on grassy areas and other colder surfaces, it didn’t pile up on roads which meant plows weren’t needed.

The snow will likely stick around for the weekend with highs and lows below freezing expected but a shot of milder air is expected to bring rain early next week.
