Not much snow for January

Jan. 25, 2017: For the first time in over 2 weeks, we’ll be seeing measurable snow fall tonight. Our last legit snow in Rockford was on January 9th, with a whopping 0.2″ falling. We average 10.3″ of snow in January, so we better get going on the snow if we hope to have an average month!

Pending tonight’s snow, we are currently ranking high in the least snowiest January’s. With 0.2″ total, January 2017 stands at 2nd for least amount of snowfall in a January. If we add 1″ onto our total, we’d still be in the top 10 for least snowiest.

Tonight’s round may be our last real shot of snow in the area, as flurries are in the forecast, which won’t lead to much through the end of the month. We likely won’t be seeing a dry overall month, though. After all of the rainfall this month, we stand just under 1″ above average with a few more days to go. That makes this particular month very interesting; above average for precipitation, but well below average for snow!
