That left the unofficial month-to-date total at a record 134, and followed 32.2 centimetres in the past two days and 50.5 since the holiday period began Christmas Eve. The new record, which includes nothing that has or will still fall today, is 15.7 centimetres more than the previous 1980 December record of 118.3. 

It’s a similar story when it comes to precipitation, as the airport weather station recorded 15 millimetres yesterday breaking another 1953 record of 12.7. It also left the 30-day precipitation total at 132.4 millimetres, which has not yet been confirmed by Environment Canada as a December record, but it will be a major surprise if it isn’t. 

In addition, despite the best efforts of snow removal crews, it also left many city streets and area highways in lousy driving condition, and again we urge motorists to drive with extreme care and caution and give those crews plenty of patience and consideration.
