It only posted a combined total of 2.4 centimeters for Friday and Saturday – the final two days of the month – leaving the total at 63.2 centimeters.

That was well above the January average of 31.7 centimeters, but it was 2.2 short of doubling it.

It was indeed a strange month for snowfall in this area, with 70 per cent of it occurring on three days, which were the 1st, 2nd and 27th.

However, there were 21 days when nothing but a trace was recorded, including 16 in a row beginning on the 11th.

In terms of precipitation, the airport station easily doubled the monthly average of 25.4 millimeters.

The unofficial total was 61.6, but that includes a one millimeter guess, as Environment Canada failed to record anything for last Friday.

Now we’ve entered the month with the lowest precipitation average in this area – as the February norm is only 19 millimeters.

However, the airport station also posted more than double that amount last year, finishing with 32.2 millimeters.
