Your shovel and back may already feel this way, but the snowpack is well below normal for this time of year.
As a matter of fact, it’s the new historic minimum snow depth for North Bay.
That’s from the North Bay – Mattawa Conservation Authority, who says the snowpack decreased by 6.5 cm since the last snow survey in mid-January.
The Conservation Authority’s Water Resources and Specialist Angela Mills says the average snow depth for the area is 19.7 cm, an all-time low for the North Bay and Shirley Skinner measuring sites. In Corbeil, only 1988 had less snow than this year.
The North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) was founded in 1972 by the Province of Ontario. NBMCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario responsible
