Past IEM Features tagged: snowfall
If you consider the winter season by the accumulated snowfall received, then on average we are about 10% complete by 5 December. The featured chart presents the season snowfall total for Des Moines before 5 December and after. A lot of scatter is shown in the chart, so a fast or slow start to the season does not necessarily portend to it continuing. There is a lot of variability shown in the chart with both values as individual and significant snowfall events can heavily skew the season totals. There are chances of accumulating snow in the forecast for both this week and potentially next week as well.
