November snowfall record broken in the Sault

After being bombarded by lake effect snow for nearly two weeks non-stop, meteorologists say Sault Ste Marie has broken its November snowfall record.

The record was originally set in 1989 at nearly 47 inches.

Dave Lawrence is a meteorologist from the Gaylord National Weather Service. He says this amount of snowfall is unprecedented for the Sault in this short amount of time.

“Ya know I think the only interesting thing is that they’ve seen 56.8 inches for the month and their entire season average snowfall is just over 120 inches. So that really puts it into perspective, ya know in an average season we’d see 50 inches spread out over three months instead of two weeks.”

The new record has bested the previous one by a solid 10 inches.
