High precipitation for the month of November

After five straight months of below average spring and summer precipitation totals, we’re now well on our way to a second consecutive above average monthly post.

The November snowfall and precipitation totals are both currently running at more than 50 per cent of the norms, and we are still in the first third of the month.

Environment Canada says the local weather station received 19.6 centimeters of snow and 19.4 millimeters of precipitation during the weekend.

That raised the month-to-date totals through yesterday to 22.4 centimeters and 21.8 millimeter, while the November norms are 32.5 and 29.2 respectively.

This followed October totals of 39.2 centimeters of snow – double the monthly average – and 53.3 millimeters of precipitation – 22.5 more than the norm of 30.8.

The amount of snow on the ground through yesterday was 21 centimeters, nearly double the monthly norm of 11.

However, that’s nowhere near the November record of 67, which was measured on the final day of the month in 1995.

That in turn is nowhere near the all time record amount, measured at the airport station on the 28th of March in 1974 at 112 centimeters.
