“Huge, almost Paul Bunyan-like snowfalls.”
David Phillips, senior climatologist with Environment Canada, said he was shocked to see that the 55 to 60 centimetres (about 23½ inches) of snow that has fallen on Regina this month has already surpassed all of last winter’s total of 52 cm.
With a week left in November, Regina has already broken the monthly record of 53.7 cm set in 1941.
The snowfall amounts are also surprising because the bulk occurred over five or six days, Phillips added.
“It’s happened in huge, almost Paul Bunyan-like snowfalls,” he said.
“Not to scare you, but whenever there has been a November with lots of snow, it seems to me you end up with a snowy winter.”Since 1883, Regina has received an average of 13.8 cm of snow in November. (More than four times the monthly average.)
Phillips notes this isn’t just the case with Regina. Estevan, for example, has received 65.2 cm of snow compared to 62.6 cm all of last winter.
