Daily Snowfall Frequencies

Posted: 08 Nov 2018 05:34 AM

Air temperatures have turned rather cold for early November and snow is even in the forecast for today into Friday. The featured chart looks at the observed frequencies of measurable snowfall for Des Moines by day of the year. Having snow during early November is certainly not that exceptional, but not common either with values around one in twenty years (5%). There isn't too much variation during the highest frequency months of December, January, and February with values in the 1 in 4 to 5 years range.

Good = 6
Bad = 0
