It was another record-breaking December 29 day in the Nation’s Capital. After several record-high temperature days this month, Ottawa has set a much more wintry record – a snowfall record.
Environment Canada meteorologist Dave Rogers says at 20.2cm of accumulation recorded at the Ottawa Airport, Tuesday’s storm broke the December 29 record of 17cm, set in 1954.
Rogers adds some parts of the Capital saw as much as 25cm of snow.
