Weather extremes: December snowfall breaks 112-year record in Calgary

December 22, 2013CANADADecember snowfall in Calgary has broken a 112-year record according to the city. The City made the announcement in a tweet Saturday morning after weeks of on-and-off heavy snowfall left many residents complaining about the lack of snow removal in parts of Calgary. “A total of 43.8 cm of snow has fallen in #yyc this month. We haven’t seen this much snow in 112 years!” tweeted the City. Snow removal crews are currently focusing their efforts on Priority 2 routes, which include connector roadways, bus routes and roads that carry 5,000 to 19,999 vehicles per day. As of 1 p.m. MT Friday, city officials said snow removal on those routes is 42 per cent complete. Crews are also spreading salt to help melt snow and ice because of the relatively warmer temperatures. As snow removal in the northeast moves along, the extra resources used in the area will be moved elsewhere to assist with road clearing. In the northeast, crews have now completed snow removal in Saddleridge, Taradale and Marlborough. Crews have completed 80 per cent of snow removal in Coral Springs and Mayland Heights. In Falconridge, Whitehorn, Martindale, Castleridge and Temple, crews are still working on maintaining roads. In the northwest, snow removal is complete in North Haven and Tuscany. In the southwest and southeast, crews are continuing to flat blade residential routes. –CBC
Extreme weather is not strictly confined to Canada. Egypt was hit with a very are snow storm last week. Cairo had been transformed into a winter wonderland after a “historic” storm in the Middle East brought a rare treat to Egypt’s capital Friday (Dec. 13): a blanket of powdery, white snow. Due to Cairo’s low rate of precipitation and typically above-freezing winter temperatures, snow is an exceptionally unusual weather phenomenon for the North African city. So unusual, in fact, that the Los Angeles Times, citing local news reports, writes that the last recorded snowfall in Cairo was more than 100 years ago. Ali Abdelazim, an official at the city’s meteorological centre, confirmed to the Agence France-Presse this is the  “first time in very many years” that snow has fallen in the Cairo area. Excited Egytians took to social media Friday to share photographs of the unusual meteorological event. -HP
