January snowfall slightly less than normal

The January norm is 32.2 centimetres and unofficially the local area total was about 28 centimetres. Last year the January total was just above the average, at 34.4 centimetres, but February was a dry month.

In fact, there were only two days of measurable precipitation, with 6.9 millimetres of rain on the 25th and 2.6 centimetres of snow on the 29th. That resulted in a monthly precipitation total of 9.3 millimetres, less than half the norm of 21.9 millimetres.
