Calgary recorded 22 cm of snow in 24 hours – Calgary | World Nation News

According to Global Calgary’s chief meteorologist Tiffany Lizzie, Tuesday saw more snowfall than Calgary did for the entire month of March.

In the last 24 hours, Calgary received 22 cm of snow, which was the record-breaking record in Calgary on April 19.

“We have the snowiest day of all seasons!” Lizzie said.

“Usually in the early months of the year—17 centimeters for January and February, 23 centimeters in March and 21 centimeters in April—we didn’t see that much snow in these months, so we had more snow yesterday than in February and That was for the entire month of March and then in one day we had our entire monthly snowfall for April.”
