The snowbanks keep getting higher in NW Moncton, 16 Feb 2017 (Facebook)

An intense low pressure system tracked across the Maritimes today bringing heavy snow along with strong northerly winds creating blowing and drifting snow.

Greater Moncton: 35 cm

Saint John: 25 cm

Fredericton: 20 cm

Charlottetown: 15 cm
