That left the ten day total at 50 point four and nearly 18 centimetres above the full monthly average of 32.7.

The station also recorded, 10.4 millimeters of precipitation, pushing that total, for the first third of the month, to 49.4, and nearly double the January average of 25.4.

In addition, the station is on track to post the second highest January snowfall total in the last 16 years, requiring only eight and half more centimeters, to match the 58.9 received in 2011.

The only January total higher than that since the year 2000 was the 84.2 received in 2003.

Environment Canada says warmer weather is now on the way but that’s not necessarily good news, especially for motorists.

Periods of freezing rain are expected tonight and tomorrow making already slippery road services even more treacherous.
