Environment Canada says a warm, moist air mass that has been responsible for high humidity and severe thunderstorms across New Brunswick is finally moving out of the province.

The storms would often develop in the late afternoon or early evening and produce strong winds, heavy rains, brief localized flooding and even hail in some areas.

Drier and cooler air has moved into the province which is expected to bring near or slightly below temperatures to Greater Moncton with little chance of precipitation.

As you can see above, a double rainbow was spotted over Riverview last night after a brief storm.

According to Accuweather, while a primary rainbow is visible when light is reflected once off the back of a raindrop, a secondary and usually dimmer rainbow is spotted when light is reflected twice in a more complicated pattern.
