Severe thunderstorm watch issued for parts of New Brunswick
Monday, July 17, 2017, 2:01 PM - Conditions are favourable for the development of severe thunderstorms in northern New Brunswick Monday, with watches already in effect.
"An onshore sea breeze develops this afternoon throughout the Maritimes, which may help some storm development in northern New Brunswick again today as they are under the boundary impacting southern Quebec and the U.S. Northeast," says The Weather Network meteorologist Kevin MacKay.
As a result, Environment Canada has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Edmundston, Grand Falls and surrounding areas.
Meanwhile, temperatures reached 30 degrees in southern New Brunswick Sunday, with the heat continuing Monday across the province and Nova Scotia.
Looking ahead, a stalled front over the U.S. Eastern Seaboard will slowly track towards the east, which will bring the risk of thunderstorms once again to northern New Brunswick for Tuesday.
