Sault Ste Marie – Latest spring in recorded history

“We are in uncharted territory for winter snow remaining,” say meteorologist Jerry Shields. These are “historic numbers.”

When looking at the historical records for the Sault, it is interesting to note that the most snow on the ground for April 19 and 20 is around 20cm, recorded back in 1972.

“With the current winter storm and an existing snowpack near 40cm its likely that by the end of this week, we will have more than these historic numbers. If this happens, it could be argued that we are in uncharted territory for winter snow remaining and a delay in the start of spring.

Snow tapers off the flurries Monday, with another 5-10cm of accumulation possible.

“Sault Ste Marie, Ontario is located on the US border, across St Mary’s river from Sault Ste Marie, Michigan and not far from Minnesota and Wisconsin,” says Greg. “We moved away two years ago as we could no longer endure the ever-lengthening winters, with day after day of snow.”

“Now, a local weather forecaster states that this late spring and snow cover is unprecedented in recorded history!”
