April 2015 exceeds average monthly precipitation total

by ,

first_imgAll those totals now exceed the April averages, which Environment Canada lists as 12.7 centimetres of snow, 9.7 millimetres of rain and 20 millimetres of precipitation.More significantly, what’s occurred in the past two days has dramatically changed the monthly precipitation narrative, which had been focussed on a precipitation total of only 0.2 millimetres in the first 15 days.This is now the eighth consecutive month of above average precipitation in this area, and the second year in a row that the April total has more than doubled the monthly average of 20 millimetres.It should also be noted that the aforementioned total does not include what has been, or what will be posted today, and it will now only take 3.4 millimetres to match last year’s total of 45.Advertisement Ten centimetres on Wednesday put to rest an April 22 record of 8.1 centimetres established only five years earlier in 2010.However, the rainfall and precipitation records were not threatened on Wednesday as the totals were posted at 8.6 and 18.6 millimetres, respectively.Both record totals were set in 1994 at 28.9 millimetres, and they are also the one day records for the entire month of April.- Advertisement -More importantly, this week’s shift in the weather has dramatically altered the precipitation total for the month.There were no daily records set yesterday but 6.3 centimetres of snow and 3.2 millimetres of rain combined for another 9.5 millimetres of precipitation.That lifted the month-to-date totals at the airport station to 17.9 centimetres of snow, 23.7 millimetres of rain and 41.6 millimetres of precipitation.Advertisementlast_img read more
