Grande Prairie breaks precipitation record

The City of Grande Prairie managed to unofficially shatter the November 4th precipitation record. A total of 17.3 millimetres of precipitation was recorded at the Grande Prairie Airport, far surpassing the previous record of 11.1 millimetres set in 1991.

The day started with freezing rain overnight, and a total of 6.5 millimetres fell. By a hair, that didn’t meet the record of 6.6 millimetres set in 1956. The snow followed, with 11 centimetres falling. The record for November 4th is 11.5 centimetres, also set in 1991.

A snowfall warning for the region was issued Friday evening. It was lifted Sunday. Road conditions around the Peace country were reported to be poor all weekend.

The Town of Beaverlodge more than doubled its own precipitation record Sunday. It saw 12.4 millimetres, when the previous record was 5.4 millimetres set in 2006.
