A stubborn low pressure system in the Atlantic Ocean off the Maritimes is responsible for the recent rainy – and today snowy! – conditions.

By early this afternoon, rain turned to wet, heavy snow in Greater Moncton which quickly turned to slush on roadways.

RCMP say slushy road conditions were likely behind a fatal collision between a car and a snow plow in Stoney Creek.

Based on an estimate and data from Environment Canada, Greater Moncton has now surpassed 500 cm for 2014-15 which is still a distance from the 1974-75 record of 531 cm.
