Long stretch for Fort St. John to reach December 11 record snowfall

20 to 40 centimeters is predicted by tomorrow morning, but it will take 28.7 to match the 1955 record for this day. 

It’s a similar story for precipitation, as that December 11th record is 28.7 millimetres also established in 1955. We received only 1.4 millimetres yesterday, lifting that month-to date total to 37.4. 

Both ten day totals are now well past the monthly averages of 32.4 centimetres, and 26.5 millimetres, and if this forecast is accurate, by this time tomorrow we may have doubled those December norms. 

Given the snowfall warning and a northerly wind that’s already pushed the wind chill reading into the minus 25 to minus 30 range, it’s once again that drivers should beware this morning.
