If anyone has ever wondered why Canadians talk about the weather so much, the previous 24-hours in Greater Moncton should serve as a great example.

The temperature bottomed out at -21.5 C yesterday morning (coldest yet this winter) and by this morning the high reached a balmy +10 C – a dramatic range of more than 30 degrees in barely a day.

Although temperature swings are common in New Brunswick during mid-winter, this one is especially extreme.

Environment Canada has issued various weather warnings for freezing rain and rain but snow is expected to be relatively light as a low pressure system moves across the region.
