A Few Winter Stats & Snow Totals

March 2nd, 2014 at 5:48 pm by under Weather

The trickiest system to forecast all winter long has left behind several inches of fresh snow on the ground of NE Indiana and NW Ohio. (How many times have we heard that this year?) Most snow totals came in between the 3-5 inch range Sunday afternoon. Fort Wayne’s storm total is officially 4.2″. A majority of that snow, 4 inches to be exact, fell Sunday making it the snowiest March 2nd in Fort Wayne on record since 1982 when 3.2″ fell. Here are a few more snowfall reports.

A couple weekend winter stats:

We have received at least a trace of snow every weekend this winter! Remarkable!

The total winter snowfall for the 2013-2014 season was 59.4″ and 44% of that total fell on weekends keeping us busy on our days off.

    So, this 1981-82 season we didn’t quite “match” in snow totals . . . How much snow was there in March 1982? So far I’ve been unable to find that statistic. If we include snow we received in November (and October) and March, and I suppose April if they had any, are we ahead of that winter? (I wasn’t in the Midwest yet, personally. But it seems likely we are living through the snowiest on record if we don’t limit the quantities to December through February.)

    1. Hi, Cheryl…1981-82 had 81.2″ of snow and this year we’ve had 72.2″. The snow “year” is measured on a July-June calendar.

        Aha. Thanks! (Glad I wasn’t here then. More than this and I think I’d go nuts.)
