Few Snowy Stats & Some Tornado Turmoil

It should be a quiet week for severe weather across the lower 48 states this week, according to the latest from the Storms Prediction Center.

Last week was fairly quiet with the exception of a severe weather outbreak in the southeast.

We saw the second killer tornado of the season, this time in Georgia. The first was in Oklahoma earlier in the month.

Here is a link with more about last week's severe weather. Here is another link.

It has been a snowy season so far for many locations in the northern tier of the US, in particular, around the Great Lakes.

Marquette, Michigan hit 200 inches of snow so far this season on Sunday.

The snow season runs from July 1 until June 30 of the following year. So far, Marquette has recorded 203.7 inches of snow since July 1, 2008.

Of that, 157.9 inches has been recorded since December 1.

They currently have a snow pack of about 32 inches.

For the season, they are 72.1 inches above normal on snowfall.

Another snowy location this year has been Syracuse, New York. Since July 1, they have recorded 141.0 inches of snow, with 124.3 of those inches since December 1.

  1. Chris, Marquette was fantastic! There indeed is some snow up there. I visited your intersection of Third and Hewitt. I snapped a few photos of the intersection, but I am disappointed in how they turned out. It was mainly due to the hour spent catching up at the 3rd Base just prior, and the timing at the intersection. It's the thought that counts, though, right?! :)
