Are we overdue for snow?


I’ve been asked several times over the past weekend whether we’re overdue for snowfall. After all, we have not seen any measurable snowfall in the Rock River Valley thus far this season.

Do you remember how we started “winter” last year? It was with one wallop of a storm! We received 6.6 inches on December 8th, followed by 4.8 inches on the 9th! Click here to see our blog coverage from last year’s storm.

You can see in the graphic above that the average first inch of snow for the past six years is in the first week of December. While some of them have been BIG snows, most are usually in the 1-3 inch range.

For what it’s worth, it would take a lot to get an inch out of Tuesday’s snow. A light snow is possible in spots next Saturday. Could that be our first inch? We’ll see!

    Ah yes, I remember last years storm. That snow was the back breaking, heart attack snow. And I remember the december 1st 2006 storm. Was going to go into work at walmart, but stuck in our street and decided to call off.
