The heat is on in New Brunswick!

It’s now mid-August and I was starting to give up hope we would have a heat wave this summer in New Brunswick.

But low and behold, a Bermuda High and a favourable jet stream pushed the temperature in Greater Moncton to 31.8 Celsius today – the warmest so far in 2015.

The hotspots in the province today were at Bathurst, Fredericton and Kouchibouguac which all reached 33 C.

The heat continues for the next few days in the region.

Environment Canada officially defines a heat wave as three consecutive days with daytime highs of 32 C or higher.
