Tim's Weather World: Waiting on some snow

So far we have seen only a trace of snow (November 12th) this snow season.  On average by the end of November about 1.5″ of snow has fallen.  With a slow, steady warming trend into Monday with highs near 60 by then, there aren’t any short term prospects for the white stuff.  More models are suggesting a cold outbreak beginning next Tuesday that should increase our odds of seeing some snow towards the middle or end of next week.

 

So while there hasn’t been much snow on the ground to talk about yet, I thought it might be a good time to talk some snow stats.  We might not see any snow soon but snow lovers can at least think about it.

 

 

 

The graph above shows that climatologically speaking, the odds of at least an inch of snow or more rise dramatically as we get towards early December.  Notice the spike in number of days with 1″ or more of snow on December 2nd.

Hang in there snow lovers!
