A 101-year-old weather record was broken earlier this week amidst a spring snowstorm.

On March 20, 1923, the area saw 12.7 centimetres of snow. 101 years later, on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, that record was broken when 16.1 centimetres was recorded to have fallen. We didn't however beat the 1896 record, which saw 20.3 centimeters of snow on March 20.

Despite the snowfall warning ending on Thursday afternoon, snow is expected to continue throughout Friday and into the weekend, with temperatures continuing to be a few degrees below average. Daytime highs for March are five Degrees Celsius, while lows are near minus seven degrees. 

While snow is expected to stop by Sunday, Airdrie and the surrounding areas may still see flurries next month. The Farmer's Almanac's 60-day long-term forecast is predicting that there may be more snow on the way.

Predictions for early April include a potential snowstorm and flurries. Mid-April will see periods of rain and snow, with cold temperatures, while the end of April is also forecast to be cold and wet.
