October proved to be very warm across New Brunswick with temperatures about 2 to 4 degrees above average compared to the 30-year-normal according to Environment Canada.

Meteorologist Jill Maepea said we were – and still are – under the influence of the semi-permanent Bermuda High over the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Bermuda.

“That’s really providing us with a continuous southwesterly warm flow as it sits there and almost bullies the other systems within the atmosphere,” she noted.

“Usually we can get some mid-latitude systems coming through but the Bermuda High is really remaining quite strong. The whole weather pattern is being blocked as a result of this high pressure that doesn’t want to move.”

Moncton had an average October temperature of 11°C which is 3.4 degrees above normal.

Saint John had an average temperature of 9.9°C which is 2.3 degrees above normal.

Maepea added that the warm, dry weather is not going anywhere right away.

Above normal temperatures are expected across southern New Brunswick until at least the middle of this month.
