SAINT JOHN, N.B. – Snow. Wind. Freezing rain.
Yes, Saint John saw it all yesterday. Over 24 centimetres of snow fell at the Saint John airport, although it may seem like more as 90 KM/H winds have caused snow to drift in parts.
News 88.9′s meteorologist Richard Zurawski says the heaviest snowfall took place in southeastern New Brunswick. “That seems to be the epicentre of all the snow. Saint John; not so much. The region saw between 25-35CM of snow yesterday. That’s enough as it is.
Richard is expecting a bit of a melt tomorrow with a mix of sun and cloud before another winter storm makes its’ way to New Brunswick on Wednesday.
