Much of New Brunswick saw near-normal or above-normal temperatures in July, according to Environment Canada.

Meteorologist Jill Maepea says while the month started off cool, temperatures heated up in the second half.

Maepea said the first heat wave of the year from July 21 to 25 led to several records being set.

“The warmest temperature that we saw during that period was on the 24th in Moncton, and they recorded the temperature for the month of July for the province, which was 33.4 degrees,” Maepea said in an interview.

Southern areas of the province are currently in the throes of another heat wave that is expected to continue through the weekend.

Maepea said we will see a return to more seasonal temperatures next week, but above-normal temperatures are expected to come back for the second half of the month.

As for precipitation, Maepea said some parts of New Brunswick saw more than usual in July.

She said a few organized areas of showers and thunderstorms moved through the province.

“Central areas of the province were actually above normal in terms of precipitation, everywhere else was generally near normal,” said Maepea.

Saint John received 107 millimetres of rain in July while Greater Moncton recorded 65 millimetres.

Maepea said they anticipate a drier trend for the month of August.

“We aren’t anticipating maybe as many organized convective events. Our precipitation will likely fall just in the form of showers or thunderstorms,” she said.

However, Maepea said there is always the possibility of seeing a tropical system or the remnants of one.

The Atlantic hurricane season generally peaks in August, September, and October.
