The last few Novembers in Greater Moncton have barely recorded a flake of snow but that certainly wasn’t the case this month.

Some parts of New Brunswick actually saw snow accumulate early in the month but it didn’t cover the ground in Moncton until the 14th and it didn’t become plowable snow on the roads until a Nor’easter blew through on the 26-27th.

Temperatures went on a real rollercoaster ride late in the month with a record-breaking maximum of 18.0 C on the 25th to a bone-chilling minimum of -14.6 C on the 29th.
