The first two-thirds of November proved to be mostly mild and dry in Greater Moncton although small amounts of rain did fall on most days.

The last ten days of the month took a decidedly colder turn and while overnight lows weren’t very cold, daytime highs struggled in the low single digits.

A blast of winter came at the very end with 26 cm of heavy, wet snow which brought up precipitation amounts but the total was still almost 40 percent below normal.
