Environment Canada says we got 9.9 centimetres of snow yesterday, putting the total for the past two days, and this month, at 13.9. It also estimates we could receive close to the same amount today and tonight, and it’s long range forecast predicts some snowflurry activity in each of the next seven days leading up to and including the first day of spring.
How much snow we’ll have received by the time this system finally plays out is anybody’s guess. However, through yesterday the unofficial year-to-date total was about 52.5 centimetres. That’s just over 60 per cent of the norm for the first three months of the year, which is 85,8 centimetres.
However, the total for the last six months is now up to about 255 centimetres, and that’s about 90 more than the 165 centimetre average for the October though March period.
