A snow-less December but what about January?
We really haven't gotten hardly any snow this month. Our total is pretty sad by December's standards, coming in at only 0.7 inches.
That's a full 7 inches below where we should be! Even though there's some snow chances around Christmas, this will look like a dry December for snowfall and we'll most likely be nowhere near the 17.3" that we need to consider December a "normal" month for snowfall.
However, when taking a look back at the last 10 years or so, when we have Decembers with very little snowfall or hardly any snow at all, we have noticed a big up-tick in snowfall for January. December itself has a wide range in totals over the last 10 years, but take a look at these 4 winter seasons, especially the last two.
You can see the big increase when we have a dry December. Now, it doesn't happen all of the time, but there is some correlation between a dry December and a snowy January. So, you want to stay ready for more snow come January.
