Temperatures surpass 20 C in the Maritimes

Signs of spring, downtown Moncton, 10 April 2017 (Dearing)


For the first time this spring, temperatures in the Maritime Provinces climbed to 20 C and higher yesterday.

In Greater Moncton, the thermometer hit 20.6 C but wasn’t quite as warm as the record of 26.7 C from 1945.

Grand Manan Island was the hotspot in New Brunswick with a new record high of 20.8 C.

Several locations in Nova Scotia were also the warmest so far this season with 23.1 C recorded at Halifax Stanfield Airport although it was much cooler in downtown Halifax.

A new record was set in Kejimkujik Park at 25.8 C which was the hotspot in Canada.
