The Fort St. John area has now received more snow in the past six days than it received in the previous 76 days of this year.

For the second consecutive day yesterday, the city set a daily snowfall record, as Environment Canada posted a total of 10.7 centimetres, topping the previous March 23rd record of 9.8 established in 1977.

That pushed the total for the past three days to 22.8 centimetres, and the past six days to 28.8.

Thus, after recording less than one centimeter during the first 17 days of the month, with another eight days to go, the local area total has now exceeded the March average of 25.3 centimetres.

For local area farmers and ranchers the 28.8 millimetres of precipitation in the past six days, while not cancelling 2010 drought fears, have arguably put them on hold.

For local area motorists, yesterday’s record snowfall is likely to make this another difficult travel day, but even though there are still flurries in the forecast for the next three days, there is also some good news for them.

Environment Canada has ended the snowfall warning.
