'Snow bomb' dumps record snowfall across New Brunswick

______________________________



.
24 Feb 09 -  McNamee saw more than 65 cm of snowfall during Monday’s blizzard, while Kouchibouguac received 60 cm of snow.

Bathurst’s 55 cm of snow set a new record for a single February day, while Fredericton’s  48 cm of snow fell just shy of the record.

The record for the most snow in a single day in Fredericton was 49 cm set on Feb. 4, 1988. Fredericton usually gets an average of 50 cm for the entire month of February.

Environment Canada said there is more snow coming.

"This latest storm is what we call a snow bomb," said Dave Phillips, an Environment Canada climatologist. "It intensified very quickly in a very short period of time, got refuelled over the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine and slammed into southern New Brunswick, and boy, it brought a lot of snow in a short period of time."
