Deep Snow for November

Posted: 05 Dec 2018 05:34 AM

The featured chart depicts daily snow depth reports from Osceola (just south of Des Moines). Each horizontal line of data represents the given winter's reports. The bottom line represents the present winter season with boxes in gray denoting missing reports. The recent big snowfall to end November really sticks out for the site compared with all other Novembers on record. Even when considering the entire winter season, you have to go back to 2009 to find comparable snow depths.

Good = 10
Bad = 0
