October 1st yields more than 50 per cent of monthly average precipitation

30.8 millimetres were recorded last month, and yesterday the local airport weather station posted a total of 17.6. 

However, there was no official record of any October 1st snowfall, so those who use that as a marker for the first day of winter are still waiting. 

Again we note the first measurable amount of snow last fall was 4.4 centimetres on the 10th of October, and before the month was over, the airport station had recorded 87.3. It also recorded 46 millimetres of rain and 28.2 of them on the first day of the month.
