For the second day in a row, Greater Moncton has set record highs making it feel more like late spring than late fall.

The thermometer climbed to 18.0 C today beating the old record from 1953 while yesterday a new record of 17.6 C was set breaking the previous one from 1959.

But the warmth is being replaced by an intense low pressure system or Nor’easter which is barrelling up the American east coast heading for the Maritimes.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Southeast New Brunswick with between 15 and 25 cm of snow and ice pellets expected to begin late Wednesday afternoon extending into Thursday.
