Environment Canada has crunched the numbers following meteorological summer which covers the months of June, July and August.

Moncton and Saint John each had one of their top five warmest summers on record – with records dating back to the 1870s and 1880s.

Meteorologist Jill Maepea said the nights were very warm especially later in the season.

“Those overnight minimum temperatures greatly contributed to our overall warmer month in August. That’s been the case generally lately – even this year and last year.

Maepea said that warmth is expected to continue through September.

“We’re looking at a warmer than normal scenario in terms of temperatures. In terms of precipitation, probably drier than normal.”

Summer was wetter than average overall in parts of southern New Brunswick and much of the precipitation fell in August.
