Environment Canada's records are now more than three weeks out of date, but unofficially, the local airport weather station had received 60.8 centimetres of snow by the end of December 24th. Adding that to the near-record snowfall of 87 centimetres in October and above average 54.7 centimetres in November, brought the three-month total to 202.5 centimetres.

Although the total is still unofficial, the additional snowfall experienced on Christmas Day likely cemented the new record. However, the number isn't expected to go much higher, as the forecast for the rest of December doesn't call for any flurries.
