All is calm today but a parade of storms have been pounding Metro Moncton this month.

Environment Canada says 120 cm of snow has fallen at the airport so far this month with another ten days still to go.

Based on a thirty-year average, February snowfall in Moncton is typically about 65 cm.

But there is some good news on the horizon.

Meteorologist Claude Cote says we can expect much calmer weather over the next few days.

“This was the last of a series of four systems which have gone through the Moncton area in the past two weeks,” he notes.

Cote adds temperatures are expected to be fairly mild in the coming days with many daytime highs above the freezing mark.
