What a difference 24 hours can make when it comes to the weather in New Brunswick.

The province is dealing with a wintry mess on Friday, one day after warm temperatures broke records.

St. Stephen, Grand Manan and Fundy National Park reached highs of 12°C, according to Environment Canada.

It was 11°C in Saint John, Point Lepreau and Kouchibouguac National Park.

The last time Feb. 16 was that warm in most of those communities was in 2016.
