July was a record-breaking month for temperatures in parts of New Brunswick.

Environment Canada says it was the warmest July on record in nine communities.

It also turned out to be the warmest month ever recorded at those nine locations.

Here are the preliminary figures released by the national weather agency this week.

The figures show the mean temperature for the month of July, and the previous record for the month at each location.

  • Miramichi: 22.7°C (previous highest: 22.1°C in 2018)
  • Moncton: 22.4°C (previous highest: 21.4°C in 2018)
  • Doaktown: 22.1°C (previous highest: 21.2°C in 1994)
  • Point Escuminac: 22.1°C (previous highest: 21.5°C in 1975)
  • Sussex: 22.1°C (previous highest: 21.9°C in 1947)
  • Bathurst: 21.6°C (previous highest: 21.5°C in 1973)
  • Charlo: 20.7°C (previous highest: 20.5°C in 2018)
  • Saint John: 19.6°C (previous highest: 19.3°C in 1952)
  • Fundy National Park: 19.4°C (previous highest: 19.3°C in 1994)

The mean temperature is the average temperature recorded during a given period of time.

Overnight lows were much warmer than usual due to a humid air mass over the region, which contributed to the higher values.
