It may now be early fall but Mother Nature seems to think it's still the middle of summer.
Humidex values across much of New Brunswick have been climbing well into the 30s and record high temperatures have been set in many communities.
Environment Canada meteorologist Ian Hubbard explains the reason behind the heat.
"Right now we have a good ridge of high pressure that is pushing in which is bringing in a lot of warm air from the southwest. So it's kind of a summer-time pattern," he notes.
Hubbard says we should try and enjoy the heat while it lasts since cooler air from the northwest is on its way by mid-week.
