Lots of rain in only 24 hours

Most of New Brunswick needed rain but did parts of the province really need a month’s worth (about 100 mm) in only 24 hours?

The answer – probably not but a low pressure system brought a lot of tropical-like moisture to the Maritimes.

Environment Canada reports Greater Moncton had almost 43 mm of rain yesterday but western and southwestern areas actually received more precipitation.

Saint John recorded almost 110 mm of rain while Greenwood, Nova Scotia had more than 110 mm which is record-breaking for the date.
