ST. JOHN’S, NL –

Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital had a good workout on Sunday morning shoveling snow up to their knees.

Kelly Butt, a severe weather observer for Environment Canada, said in a tweet that more than 52 centimeters of snow fell in east St. John’s.

Butt says weather radar at St. John’s International Airport recorded 48 centimeters.

Snow was blown overnight by strong winds, and many downtown homes were covered in streaks of caked snow as the sun rose on Sunday.

Environment Canada says Sunday’s weather should be mild and relatively calm before two days of rain set in Monday.

The storm started Friday evening and capped off an exceptionally snowless December; According to Environment Canada meteorologist Robert Grove, the city recorded just six centimeters of snow last month, which is well below average.
