Lacking Snow

January 28, 2015: This winter has been rather lacking.  Overall, the temperatures have been manageable and mild, which has been nice. The snowfall, though, especially for winter sport and activity enthusiasts, has been sporadic and underwhelming.

There have been 9 total days with measureable snowfall.

There have been 9 total days with measurable snowfall.

So far this winter, we’ve had nine total days with meaning snowfall (21 days if you add in the 12 days with a trace (a dusting) of snowfall).  That puts us at over a foot below average this winter (mostly because of December; January isn’t far below average). We haven’t had a snowfall above 3″ yet either, and the majority of our snowfall total fell over a 4 day span in early January.

This should be the last time we have snowfall this month. February 1st is our next chance, so the new month is starting out on the right foot, if you like snow. There aren’t any strong indication one way or the other right now as to how snowy February will be, so we’ll have to wait and see if next month can make up for the lack of snow so far this winter.
