Will it ever snow?

Posted: 07 Dec 2012 05:40 AM

Des Moines is now tied for record number of days between measureable snowfall at 277. The featured chart presents the period each year between the last spring snowfall and the first snowfall of the winter (not including trace reports). We are also approaching the latest in the year to have the first snowfall of 15 Dec 1999. Weather models had provided some hope for snowfall this weekend, but now it looks less definitive. We could certainly use moisture in any form at this point as the saying "beggers can not be choosers" applies.

Good = 85
Bad = 12
