Portage la Prairie could see a 22-year weather record broken depending on how much snow we see over the course of the month.
Local weather observer Henry Romance says if we get 39.8 millimetres of precipitation this month, we will hit 763.1mm. That would break the record set back in 2000, and would be the highest amount seen in more than 50-years.
"For me, it would be something here, because I haven't seen any records broken in all my years that I was in the military doing weather observation, mostly in eastern part of Canada," says Romance. "Breaking the record here in Portage, it would be amazing, I would say."
Between January 1st and November 30th, we had 723.3mm of precipitation recorded, which is already an 11-month record for the last 50 years. In November, we saw 16.9mm of rain and snow combined.
Temperature-wise, the average high was 0.0 while the daily low was -7.5 degrees.
