Three major winter storms in less than a week have left 104 cm of snow on the ground in Greater Moncton.

Environment Canada says the most recent blizzard dropped 43 cm of snow along with strong, gusty winds which lasted almost eight hours.

The City of Moncton has urged residents not to park on any street, day or night, in order to help work crews with snow clearing operations.

Given the volume of snow, city officials want to ensure emergency vehicles can safely get around.

Meanwhile, the blizzard has left Saint John with 126 cm of snow on the ground – a new record which prompted a snow emergency in the city’s south end – and Fredericton now sits at 69 cm.

Believe it or not, forecasters say another storm system could impact New Brunswick later this week.
