Snowfall continues to add up this November
You may not realize it but we've had quite a bit of snow this November. And the snow continues to fall for some early this morning. Over the weekend alone, we picked up just over another inch here at the ABC 57 studio, and the south bend airport, where the official record is kept, had similar numbers. We've even had measurable snowfall late last night into this morning, thanks to the lake effect. As of this morning, we officially have 5 inches of snow this month! With 10 days left in the month, we're already past our monthly normal of 4.8 inches. Give yourself some extra minutes in NW Michiana when heading out this morning.
And there is more room for snow chances of as we head towards the very end of the month.
Overall, our precip numbers aren't outside of normal. We're right around average, but the snowfall numbers have taken off this month. We're just about 3 inches above average, and we end the month on a wet note, thanks to the next system coming through this weekend. During the overnight hours, don't be too surprised to see some wet snowflakes mix in. The Climate Prediction Center agrees to. We have a slight chance of holding onto the wetter-than-normal conditions for the last few days of the month.
As of this morning, the south bend airport recorded another 0.2 inches of snow, bringing the total up to 5 inches. That's puts us as the 4th snowiest November over the past 10 years. It's also interesting to note that the first through third place Novembers occurred in consecutive years: 2013, 2014, and 2015.
