Record snowfall hits Northern Northwest Territory (N.W.T. ).
It might not quite feel like a Northern Christmas in July, but some people in parts of the N.W.T. certainly aren’t welcoming the winter-like weather.
This week, snow has been falling in at least three N.W.T. communities — Sachs Harbour, Inuvik and Paulatuk.
CBC Meteorologist Ashley Brauweiler says about five cm of snow fell in Sachs Harbour between Tuesday and Wednesday, breaking a new record for July 20. The last record was hit in 1966 with just 3.3 cm of snow.
Brauweiler says conditions could continue into Thursday, with another two to three cm in Sachs Harbour.
