Fort St. John has set another weather record and one no one wants in April.

Friday the area received 13.8 cm of snow easily surpassing the previous record of 9.7 cm in 1944.

So far this month, the area has received approximately 37 cm of snow when we normally get about 10.6 cm in April.

Environment Canada predicts we’ll get a few more flurries today, but the snow should end by this evening.   Around the region, Dawson Creek only got about 0.3 mm of precipitation and Fort Nelson got 1.8 cm of snow on Friday.

There is hope on the horizon as the long range forecast calls for warmer temperatures next week with highs near 5 and 7 degrees.
