How common is a three inch snow storm?
Thursday was our biggest snow of the season so far, with a range of one to three inches falling across Michiana. On the higher end, we measured 3.1 inches at our station. We will start to see more three inch snow days as we head closer to winter. The graph below shows the number of times that three or more inches of snow has fallen on each day. Without surprise, it is most common for three inches of snow fall on a day during December and January. However, it's also fairly common in November.
On Thursday, three or more inches of snow has only fallen on that date five other times. On Thanksgiving, we have only ever received three inches or more snow four times, and Christmas Eve is the most common day of the year to receive three inches of snow! We love a White Christmas.
