Sunday Snow Totals

January 26th, 2014 at 11:45 am by under Weather

A fast-moving clipper system brought another burst of snow to Northeast Indiana and Northwest Ohio this morning. The snow began around 6:00am and quickly spread eastward, falling at a moderate rate at times. Roads quickly became covered and visibility dropped to 1 miles or less during the heaviest of the snow. Just as quick as the snow arrived, it tapered off this morning, leaving 2-3″ for most folks to contend with. Take a look at some of the snow reports in our area:

Snow totals from Sunday morning. Keep in mind that most of this fell in a matter of 3-4 hours.

So, where does that leave Fort Wayne when it comes to snowy January stats? Well, we’re still waiting on the official observation at the airport. We officially rank as the 2nd snowiest January ever with 26.5″ of snow this month. That’s just 3.0″ shy of the all-time record set back in January of 1982. We’re going to be really close!

Also interesting to note, at this point in time last year (January 2013), we had only received a whopping 2.0″ of snow in January!

    Well, this is THE snowiest winter in my 13 years living in Indiana, and as a native Rhode Islander, I am thoroughly enjoying this winter so far! Could do without the polar vortex though.. needs to stay ABOVE zero.. for the sake of the wildlife.

    Definitely had more than three inches in the New Haven area. Roads aren’t that bad though.

    So surprised that the blizzard of 1978 is not mentioned by as the record for total snow accumiulation. But then

    again, I just realized that we are talking about the month of January. Never mind!
