August was warm in southern New Brunswick with monthly averages about one to two degrees above normal for most areas and several locations recorded their top 5 warmest August on record.

Environment Canada says Saint John had its second warmest August ever with records dating back to 1871.

Moncton had its fourth warmest August ever with records dating back to 1881.

Meteorologist Jill Maepea says it was quite wet last month too.

“Many areas in the province actually saw above normal precipitation. Moncton saw its sixth wettest August on record with 167 millimeters.”

Saint John picked up a bit more at 169 millimetres which was also above normal but Maepea says the city has recorded many other rainy Augusts.

Maepea adds precipitation in summer can vary greatly from place to place.

“Generally during the summer, we often see just convective events in the form of showers and thundershowers. Those tend to be more localized as opposed to the more widespread synoptic events we see generally in the fall, winter and spring.”

As for September, Environment Canada is calling for warmer and drier conditions for most of New Brunswick.
