As reported earlier, the local airport weather station posted 19.6 centimetres of snow on New Year’s Day and then followed that with 14 more on Friday.

That just missed setting a second consecutive record as the January 2nd mark is 15 centimetres recorded in 1954.

However, it did push the two day total to 33.6, and it went to 33.8 on Saturday, compared to the January average of 32.7 cm.

We’ve also easily surpassed the January totals of last year when the airport station posted 25.3 centimetres of snow and 23.4 millimetres of precipitation.
