Local Weather Numbers for March

first_imgThanks to a very good March, in which more than double the normal amount of precipitation was received, Fort St. John area farmers and ranchers at least have some reason to hope for drought relief, heading into the spring seeding period. 45.6 centimeters of snow, about 20 more than the local area average, resulted in 44.7 millimeters of precipitation, as compared, to the March norm, of 21.4. It also raised to 88.7 millimeters, the total for the first three months of the year. So, despite a very dry February, when the local airport recorded only 10.8 millimeters…less than half the monthly norm…the year-to-date total is now almost 20 millimeters ahead, of the local area average. – Advertisement -However, it should also be remembered that, at this time last year, we were virtually in the same position, having recorded 90.9 millimeters. In addition, we stayed well ahead of the norm through April and May, but then disaster hit, in June and July. They are traditionally the two heaviest local area precipitation months of the year, with a combined norm of nearly 155 millimeters. However, last year we received less than a third of that total….only 47.3 millimeters.last_img read more
