Snow, snow and more snow

Red Deer is a magnet for snow so far this month.

Red Deer is a magnet for snow so far this month.

From Friday morning to early Sunday morning, a total of 20 cm fell on the city, according to Environment Canada.

So far in November Red Deer has received 55.4 cm of snow.

“It’s a good start for playing outside in the snow,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Bruno Marquis on Sunday.

The mean average for snowfall in Red Deer during the month of November is 16.9 cm.

Red Deer was already looking like a winter wonderland after 21 cm fell on Nov. 2 and 11.8 cm came down on Nov. 3 — the largest accumulation across Alberta that weekend.

After that weekend, a dusting of snow came down on Nov. 4 and 9 when .4 cm fell each day. On Nov. 10, Red Deer saw another 1.8 cm.

Crews were out clearing roads over the weekend and drivers are reminded to continue to slow down and steer clear of snow removal equipment by keeping two car lengths away from sanders and snowplows.

The City of Red Deer encourages drivers to practice safe driving techniques such as giving themselves extra time to reach their destination, reducing speed, leaving extra distance between the vehicle ahead to allow more time to stop, and clearing windshields, mirrors and lights.

Red Deer is in for more snow today and Tuesday, according to Environment Canada’s forecast.
