If you feel like you’ve shovelled a lot less snow this winter, you’re right.
Weather specialist for 680 CJOB, John Wilson, says that snowfall is well-below average amounts.
Winnipeg has had about 38 centimetres of snowfall this year. Other years the average is around 69 centimetres by this time in February. That makes us at about 60 percent of normal snow amounts.
He adds usually what is on the ground doesn’t melt, but this winter there have been times when the accumulation melted due to milder weather.
