If that holds true it will put an already distinct difference, in even more contrast, with what occurred last year. In addition to no measurable amount of snow this month, there has no precipitation of any kind in the last 11 days, leaving the month-to date total at 28.5 millimetres.
By comparison, in the first 20 days of last October the local airport weather station had recorded 40.4 centimetres of snow, and the monthly precipitation total was up to 109.3 millimetres. By the 27th of the month – which would take us through the end of this week – the snowfall total was up to 75.5 centimetres and the precipitation total had jumped to 135.1 millimetres.
By the end of the month those totals were up again to 87.3 centimetres and 146.5 millimetres, and both those totals were more than five times the October averages.
