No dry December this year

Dec. 27, 2016: Unlike the last couple Decembers, we haven’t had a shortage of both rain AND snow. It seems like we’ve been lacking one or the other the last couple years. 2014 featured no snow and not much rain, while last year we were well below average for snow but WAY above average for rainfall.

This year, we get a good helping of both precipitation (so all liquid water, both rain and any frozen precip. melted down) and snowfall. Here’s where we stack up:

wet december

We may fall just a little short on precipitation, but there are potentially two more chances before the month is over. No worries about snowfall- this is the most snow we’ve seen in December since 2013. Most of it is gone thanks to the very warm weather recently, but it was nice to have for the recent holiday weekend. We’ve had snow each weekend so far this month, but it looks like we may fall one weekend short of a “sweep” with little chances this upcoming weekend.
