Still +16C in Moncton at 11 AM. The sharp drop in temperatures here is expected to occur around 4 PM with a flash freeze warning in effect.

The snow cover in the city is all gone (except for snow banks along the curb sides). I took a drive around this morning and the water level in Jonathan Creek through Centennial Park must be 15 feet higher than it was yesterday. This creek is notorious for flash flooding. There is however no major overland flooding in Moncton that I can see.

Pretty incredible, Prairie-like temperature drop to go along with it. It seems like all the snow that melted over the last two days will be replaced by this afternoon.

The Weather Network now shows the temperature in Moncton to be +1C. The official Environment Canada station at the airport is currently offline, but I just stuck my nose out the door and it certainly feels significantly colder out.

If this is true, then the temperature fell 15 degrees Celsius in the last 60 minutes!!!

This possibility seems confirmed by this map courtesy of Weather Underground.



Talk about a sharp cold front - Sheesh!!!

St. John's was fortunate to not have had much snow accumulated before this thaw. Not true on the west coast. Flooding, mudslides, and road washouts all over the place. A few pictures from FB:











And the only land route across the island is closed.





Corner Brook (our second city; fourth in population these days, but it'll always be the second) has declared a state of emergency.

I've since discovered the abrupt temperature drop here in Moncton at noontime was 15 degrees Celsius in only 30 minutes!

The heaviest rain in the province extended in a northeasterly band from the Kennebecasis Valley, through Sussex and up to Kent County (north of Moncton).

Mechanic Settlement (Between Fundy Park & Sussex) was the champion with 126 mm of rain (5 inches).

Here are a couple of pictures from CBC showing flooding and damage in Kent County.

Weather reports are saying that "Ottawa" got 16 cm of snow on the north edge of this storm. That's the airport.

At my place in Gatineau I am pretty sure we got about 5 cm only. Barely shovellable.

Some of the highs in Newfoundland today. 17 degrees in the Codroy Valley, 16 degrees in St. John's. Still 14 degrees at St. John's airport at 1am; 15 degrees at my neighbourhood weather station.

Insanely windy though. Supposedly gusting to 100 km/hr in low-lying areas, otherwise gusting to 80.

Temperature skyrocketed this morning. From -36C to -1C in the afternoon. Took a trip to Stettler for funeral planning and similar conditions there.

WTF??? Officially 30.4 cm in Montreal today. Absolute chaos outside... not quite as bad as the storm of the century in March but it was more than enough to replace the snow that had melted.

It's back to brutal cold... -12C with a wind chill of -21C. It stopped snowing at about 2PM and immediately cleared up.

What a sharp contrast in 24 hours... difference of 23C in 24 hours (from 10C to -13C). It was even more extreme in Saint-Anicet going from 15C to -15C in 24 hours. This is Prairies like temperature swings but it fits in perfectly with the Maple Creek like winter we're having.
Jan 12 also saw 17 mm of rain which was a record (old one was 8.2 mm in 2005).

The warmspot was Greenwood, NS at 19.0C. Needless to say it's a new high for 2018 in Canada.

EDIT: Final tally for Trudeau airport is 36 cm

The rain keeps things clean and green, clean and green. The rain stopped on Saturday so lots of people got out and about for the afternoon. Because of the lack of freezing temperatures on the Downtown Vancouver peninsula I had a feeling something might be coming up so I went for a long walk in the West End. I was not disappointed.

Saturday's high at Vancouver Harbour was 9 C, the low was 6 C.

Yep now is the time to be a little jealous of West Coast weather, still mostly overcast and rain, but that slowly eases and spring starts whereas the rest of the country is in the middle of winter. That said the whole country has their time to shine weather wise at some point in there year. For here it would have to be early to mid autumn.
