Obliterated daily record and finished 3rd on the list of snowiest November days on record.

On the back of its warning that the Northwest Territories will suffer a “colder-than-average winter” with “more snow,” Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) reports that 19.4 cm (7.64 inches) of powder fell at Pearson airport Sunday, which shattered the previous Nov. 22 record of 7.6 cm (2.99 inches) set in 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23).

For a similarly significant amount of snowfall during the month of November you have flip the record books back 80 years, to Nov. 26, 1940, when the city saw 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). Sunday’s totals finished 3rd in the list of snowiest November days on record, behind Nov. 30, 1940, and Nov. 24, 1950.
