For the fourth month in a row, temperatures in Greater Moncton were below normal and precipitation in April was near normal unlike the previous four months which were very rainy and snowy.

Environment Canada data shows daytime highs were much colder than average both at the start and end of the month with very cold overnight lows up until mid-April.

The cold, cloudy weather most likely slowed the melting of the deep snow cover with 67 cm recorded on 01 April to complete snow melt by 27 April.
