Another long and dark winter is finally over – at least astronomically speaking anyway!
The vernal equinox officially arrived at 1:15pm ADT in New Brunswick marking spring as the length of day equals the length of night.
But forecasters say winter weather is not over yet with the fourth Nor’easter in two weeks expected to hit the Maritimes on Thursday.
Environment Canada says spring-like weather may not arrive until month’s end or early April.
So much for Shubenacadie Sam’s prediction of an early spring!
