It’s already been snowier in Toronto this year than last.
In an interview with Daily Hive, Environment Canada Meteorologist Geoff Coulson shares that Toronto Pearson Airport has already recorded 90.5 cm of snow since the first flurry hit the ground in November up until the most recent precipitation.
The city has already exceeded the total snowfall this winter than in the previous year when only 85.2 cm of snow fell between the first snowflake in October of 2016 to the last snowflake in April 2017.
Despite 2018 out-snowing recent years past, Torontonians should consider themselves lucky. The annual average is 108 cm in Toronto while places in Ontario’s “snowbelt,” like the Muskokas, typically see between 300 cm and 320 cm of snow each year.
