Temperatures seldom stay below freezing for more than a few days at a time during winter in Southeast New Brunswick.
The first cold snap of the season is no exception.
Greater Moncton dipped to -20.9 C early yesterday which was still well below the record of -30.5 C from 1981.
The thermometer dipped even lower in Edmundston at -28.3 C.
But Environment Canada says temperatures will gradually climb above freezing by this weekend with rain possible early next week.
