As of 11p.m. Thursday night the local airport had recorded a snowfall total of 11.7 centimeters, pushing this week’s and this month’s, unofficial total to nearly 24 centimeters.
Given what has fallen since then, it’s reasonable to assume we’ve now received at least two and half times the monthly average of 10.6, with half the month still to come.
Environment Canada has lifted the snowfall warning for the area but it is still calling for a total of four centimeters Friday.
In addition, because the storm front arrived, about six hours later than anticipated yesterday morning, the weather bureau is also saying there’s about a 70 percent chance of more flurries on Saturday.
So, needless to say, this is another morning when local area motorists will be required to adjust to winter driving conditions.
