Timmins normally has 65 cm of snow by now

Post by Captain Steubings » Sun Nov 29, 2015 11:43 am

Although a fresh coating of snow and sub-zero temperatures rolled into Timmins on Friday, the region has been treated a later-than-usual start to winter, this year.

Environment Canada reported that the region has experienced unseasonably mild temperatures this month as well as significantly lower snowfall accumulations compared to years past.

“So far this month, the mean temperature seems to be around five degrees warmer than usual. It’s definitely been a warm month of November,” said Peter Kimbell, a meteorologist with Environment Canada. “There’s been a lot less snow than normal as well. The normal snowfall for the month of November in Timmins is 49 cm. If you include October in the mix, as well, you should be at about 65 cm. So by this time, at the end of November, you usually are about 65 cm — it’s way below normal this year.”

The total snowfall accumulation from Thursday’s storm, recorded at the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport, was 7 cm.

When the freezing rain that proceeded the snow is factored into the equation, they measured approximately 9 mm of precipitation, overall.
Aside from that, the city has received little more than a light dusting of the white stuff otherwise.

While Kimbell added that many are probably “enjoying the warm November weather, so far,” there are certainly a few residents in the city who are anxiously awaiting colder temperatures and more snow.

Skiers and sledders, in particular, are among those who hope that typical Northern Ontario conditions will appear sooner-than-later.

Neither the Porcupine Ski Runners club nor the Kamiskotia Snow Resorts have opened officially — though Kamiskotia normally begins its season during the Christmas break. Meanwhile snowmobiling enthusiasts have also had limited opportunities to get out on the trails.

Snow-sport lovers in the city will likely have to keep waiting into December to see any significant snowfall, as Kimbell is predicting the mild temperatures will continue into the following week.

Aside from predicted lows of -18 C for Friday night and -13 C for Saturday night, temperatures are predicted to be above the seasonal average until next Thursday.

“All we know is that weather is variable, it goes up and down,” Kimbell said of the long-term predictions for the region. “We had a brutally cold winter last winter and hopefully that won’t happen again this year. But if it does, that’s just par for the course in Northern Ontario.”

That's total snow fallen from the sky, melted or not. Not the total on the ground at one time.

That's exactly right! The stat they should have followed is snow on the ground. I'll have to look it up.
