Michiana seeing 3rd-most "extreme" start to winter season since 1999
Thru December 4th, numerous cities have seen "extreme" winter seasons. That includes Kansas City, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Chicago, Marquette, and right here in Michiana! South Bend, up until December 4th, is in the "Extreme" category with a score of 77. That means our winter season, which started on November 9th, has been significantly worse than what it should be up until this point. And, based off what November brought us, who could argue?For December 4th, the index has been as high as 176 and as low as 0. Thru this point last winter, the index was a measly 25. Going back to 1999, this is the third-most extreme start to a winter season in South Bend! Something to keep in mind is this does not mean the rest of the winter season will be snowy and cold.
