While everyone here in the southeast is very aware of the storm that just passed through, one organization couldn't see much thanks to a blackout.

Environment Canada monitored the previous storm last week but ran into a bit of bad luck this weekend as rain, snow, and heavy winds swept across the area.

With that warmer snow and rain, a lot of that piled onto infrastructure which broke and ended up causing outages.

Environment Canada Meteorologist Terri Lang says one of the items affected by those outages was their monitoring devices for the area.

"We actually don't know. We have no observation, except one that's Maryfield near the Manitoba border. 33 centimeters is what we got from there, but we've received no weather observations, and the automatic weather station and the other Nav Canada station are both offline, so we don't have any access to the information, so we don't know."

They also can't confirm what the wind speeds were during that storm, though Lang says they were likely near the forecasted 80-90 km/hr mark.

They won't have snowfall estimates because of those outages, and even if the power stayed on, that wind would've likely messed with any snow measurement devices.

"It is affected by the power outage, but even so there are no snowfall measurements that come out of those two weather stations, so we still don't know. Even if we had the observations that could tell us the total precipitations that fell, that would be melted snow and rain. It would give an estimate of the snow depth, it's just a laser pointing down, so if the winds were gusting the way they were we'd still have no idea how much snow fell."

Even though exact data isn't available from the stations, Lang says overall the storm predicted how they thought it would.

"Certainly it did pan out the way the weather models were indicating. We knew with the temperatures that close to freezing, that you could vary between rain or snow, and then we knew that it was gonna get into that really wet snow because the temperature hovered right near freezing for a long time. The water content of that snow was really high and it was really sticky so it stuck to power lines and that kind of thing."

Lang reminds people that after a storm they can help Environment Canada by tweeting out local information under the hashtag #SKStorm.
