Snowy February, So Far

You don’t need us to tell you that the month has been off to a wintry start.  In Waterloo, we’ve seen at least a trace of snow over the last 10 days (Feb. 2-11). However, we’ve only had 7 of those days with measurable snow (more than a 0.1″).

Looking back at records for the most consecutive days with measurable snow for Waterloo, Dubuque, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, we found some interesting facts.  Cedar Rapids has had 9 consecutive days with measurable snow this month, which is the all time record.  Dubuque also had 9 days, which is the longest streak, ever, at the airport.  Waterloo was the 4th longest streak, and Iowa City (based on the data we could find) did not make the top 10.

We certainly have been playing catch-up in the snowfall department this season.  With the recent snow, we are within a couple inches above and below average across the “Big 4.”  We’re also ahead in most areas this year, compared to last winter (which was a down year, to the date, as well).
