November got off to a mild start in Greater Moncton – the monthly high 19.4 C was actually 0.1 degrees warmer than October’s maximum – but temperatures quickly tumbled especially overnight.
Only two nights were actually above freezing with the coldest weather around the middle of the month.
The first measurable snow was recorded on 07-8 (18.8 cm) which was more than half of the November total and rainfall was lighter than usual.
Daytime highs struggled to climb above freezing especially during the last two weeks which led to a below normal monthly average.
