Fort St. John close to snowfall record

The winter solstice is still nearly two months away and it will be a little more than a month yet, before the Canadian Avalanche Centre starts issuing it's official forecasts. However, given the early blast of winter this month it is already putting out a warning to back country enthusiasts.

With snowfall nearly four times the October average, few populated areas of the province, are more aware of the impact of an early winter, than this one.

As of yesterday, the October snowfall total was 64 centimeters in a month when the average is 16.5.

Environment Canada confirms, it is the second highest October total on record, for Fort St. John, exceeded only by the 97.5 in 1957.

Our region has already established a new precipitation record, with the month-to-date total, through yesterday, up to 128.3 millimeters, nearly five times the October norm of 25.8.
