Local Weather Update

By Dwight Ford

This is another morning for motorists to slow down and exercise care and caution on city streets and local area roads and highways.

 

The official Environment Canada snowfall amount for Fort St. John yesterday was 8.1 centimetres, breaking the old March 22nd record of 6.1, set in 1976.

That raised the monthly total to 18.7 centimeters and the total amount of precipitation to 18.9 millimetres.

With up to 14 centimeters, the high end estimate for today, it is now possible this area will reach its March norms by this time tomorrow morning, despite receiving nothing more than a trace of snow for the first 17 days of the month.

The average March snowfall is 25.3 centimeters and the precipitation norm is 21.4 millimetres.
