Warm Winter Likely For Southern N.B.

By Allan Dearing Dec 9, 2022 | 6:10 AM

Meteorological winter began on December 1, but it certainly hasn’t felt very wintry across southern New Brunswick.

The Weather Network has unveiled its winter forecast and meteorologist Doug Gilham believes a warmer-than-average trend will continue across the region.

“It looks like we will see less severe cold, less persistent cold than we see in a typical winter. We’re going to see more thaws, more periods of mild weather and at times some very mild weather.”

Gilham thinks the storm track will often veer further north than usual this winter.

“For southern parts of the province, that will translate into near normal snowfall. We think a number of the systems will bring messy mixes of rain, possibly ice and snow.”

Gilham adds warmer-than-normal ocean temperatures continue to surround Atlantic Canada and this will be a factor when it comes to periods of milder weather over the winter months.
