Spring sputtered in Southeast New Brunswick during April with cold overnight lows and daytime highs were all over the chart.

Precipitation was below normal with little snow in Greater Moncton and rainfall was about 20 percent below average.

Although the thermometer climbed into the 20’s on a couple days, lows were so chilly during the last week that records were challenged on several nights.
