The stats show that it really has been both warmer and more snowy in Ottawa this year. The average January temperature from 1981 to 2010 was -10.2 degrees. The average January temperature in 2022 and 2023 was -5.9 degrees.
We've also had 280 cm of snow this year, rather than the average of 225 cm.
But beware overnight – we're probably going to make it an even 300 cm with a heavy snowfall warning.
Also: move your car off the street. The parking ban will be in effect from 7 pm Saturday to 7 am Sunday. As always, there are some park and rides and community centres where you can temporarily move your motor.
