Record highs in Eastern Canada

What a difference in one week in downtown Fredericton, 23 Feb 2017 (Facebook)

The weather has been relatively calm lately in New Brunswick and the Maritimes which has been a welcome relief after a string of winter storms earlier this month.

Mild air has pushed into the region which set several record highs yesterday both here and in Southern Ontario.

The Greater Moncton International Airport reached 10 C and it was the warmest temperature since 18 December – just shy of the record of 13.2 from 1981.

But some weather stations in the Moncton area climbed as high as 13 C.

New record highs for 23 February:

Kouchibouguac Nat’l Park 12.4 C

Woodstock, NB 11.9 C

Bathurst 10.5 C

Windsor, ON 19.3 C

London, ON 18.3 C

Toronto Pearson Airport 17.7 C

Little snow on the ground in NE Moncton, 17 Jan 2017 (Dearing)

For the past week or so, the weather has been fairly calm in Greater Moncton apart from some light snow.

But that could change now that Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Southeast New Brunswick.

An intense low pressure system will approach the province on Tuesday and bring snow, ice pellets and freezing rain.

The precipitation is expected to change to rain later on Tuesday and along with strong winds will continue into Wednesday.

The Weather Network is suggesting up to 20 cm of snow before the changeover.
