Moncton sort of dodged between the snow bands last evening, and it really didn't get going until about 8:30 or so. We received 9 cm by midnight, and probably no more than 15 cm total (so far). Precipitation will continue all day today however, but currently it's rain, so I'm not sure how much more accumulation we will get.

It was windy however, with the peak wind gust at YQM being 84 km/hr. We had a few hundred power outages overnight, but it was far worse in NS. At one point, over 30,000 customers were without power down there (mostly in SW Nova Scotia).

Similar to a lot of other places, March has been quite snowy here - seems like moreso than February. (And certainly moreso than the last half of February.)

It has been a strange couple of weeks - snowing a lot, but most of it, until today, melting during the day. It's like we're stuck somewhere between winter and spring.

-16C, -23C windchill.

Cold and so much snow and ice. because of the drifts hanging over the roof the path beside my house is going to be an icy hazard for weeks now. I chipped some of it off yesterday, but it will be back again today.

Significant amount of snow in the forecast for next week as well. 10 to 15cm more. Should put actual Spring yardwork here well into May.

They still have about 23,000 customers without power, spread fairly evenly around the province. They have about 500,000 customers (and don't like to build or maintain underground lines...).

Total accumulation of snow after storm #3:

I agree, last week we had what, 3 or 4 days where it snowed almost non stop? There was barely a trace on the ground though, I suppose the bare ground had warmed up just enough that the snow melted upon contact. The other few times we got a couple of cm it was gone at the end of the day. Grass was still visible in my neighbourhood yesterday.

The latest snowfall covered the bare ground though. As we speak the snow doesn’t seem to be accumulating anymore.

Snow melt has been pretty crazy last couple days, and the crazy thing is how much more still has to melt. We might be at risk of flooding this year, I heard the rockies are way above average for snow as well.

Only 3. It hasn't been 3C here since January 30th. Which is saying a lot about how little snowcover there was then in comparison to now.

It's 0C right now.

Honestly though, the wind made it feel more like -10c

In Vancouver, February seemed colder than January. We had three highs below 3°C in February and 6 days with measureable snow, but no highs below 3°C in January, and no days with measureable snow.

Today it's 10°C in Vancouver, wind 3 km/h, cloudy with some sun.

Pretty much the same here.

1C and snowing today. We had some accumulation because of the intensity but roads were generally clear.
A 1C high is now BELOW average.

The warmspot was Sheringham Point, BC at 15.3C.

A mix of sun and clouds today with a chance of flurries, high of 4C. Nothing but bright sunshine for the next four days, with highs of 11C by Sunday!

Ha, more snow for Calgary and southwest Alberta. The recent warmer weather and resultant freeze and thaw cycles have made for ridiculous residential road conditions. Snowpack amounts in Calgary are double to triple what we would normally expect to see in the city and the mountains out west are pretty much way above normal for snow pack as well.

I think the only major Canadian cities that still have an average high below freezing at this point are Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon!

So it's confirmed. We got more snow in the first 14 days of March than in the 28 days of February.
