  • This year we’re just a little ahead of the average date of first measurable (0.1-inch or more) November 18th (records dating back to 1884)
  • Only 25 years, just 18% of them had a 1-inch snow before November 15th
  • In the past 50 years (since 1972) the average date of the first 1-inch snow has been December 5th and the first 3-inch or greater snowfall on December 25th
