St. Catharines takes first place for snowfall following Friday's blizzard
Warmer temperatures are expected to melt much of Friday's massive snowfall here in Niagara.
Environment Canada says single-digit temperatures are forecast from Windsor to the Niagara area today, with rain set to move in this evening.
The agency says mild weather will likely continue until Tuesday, shrinking the piles of snow left behind by the behemoth snow storm that shut down most of the region.
Environment Canada says St. Catharines received the most snowfall in all of southern and eastern Ontario.
Early results indicate that 44 centimetres of snow blanketed part of the Niagara Escarpment in the city’s south end.
Peterborough came in second with 41 cm, while north Waterloo and Aurora were tied for third with 40 cm each.
Hamilton and Toronto came in at 30 cm while Ottawa received 20 cm.
The storm is blamed for at least three deaths in Ontario.
