The warmest temperature so far in 2016 was recorded in Greater Moncton this afternoon with a warm high of 29.5 C – beating today’s record of 29.3 C from 1999.

But a strong cold front moved across Southeast New Brunswick which prompted Environment Canada to issue a severe thunderstorm warning shortly after 6pm.

In less than an hour, the temperature dropped nine degrees from 27 C to 18 C and hail was reported north of Moncton.

The front has ushered in much cooler temperatures with a high tomorrow of only 13 C and a risk of frost by early Thursday morning.
