In what seems to be a relentless winter with consistent blasts of arctic air and an aggressive active storm track, it should come as no surprise that Toronto's Pearson Airport has recorded more snow so far this winter than ALL of last winter combined.
So far, Toronto has reported 90.5 cm of snow, out-snowing the 84.2 cm of snow that fell from November 2016 through to April 2017.
It's a similar story in Hamilton, Ontario as well. The city has seen 114.4 cm of snow so far this winter versus the 114.2 cm of snow combined from November to April.
It was definitely relentless over the past week. We had plenty of snow on the ground and then we got smashed with three days of snow, freezing rain, and snow. The only positive is that the brutal cold of January didn't make a repeat visit. Also, the forecast of the following week is an improvement. It looks like the worst is over. Any day in February with above zero temperatures is a gift.
