Great work by the climate guys at the National Weather Service in Wakefield: Here’s a snippet from an email they sent out:
Currently we’re at 24.7″ of snowfall for the season, 16th highest out of 113 seasons. We’ve also had 3 separate events of 6″‘ or more of snowfall…which ties with 1946-47, 1959-60, and 1961-62 as the only seasons with 3 or more such events. This season’s total is also more snowfall than RIC had received over the past 5 seasons combined (2004-05 through 2008-09). (24.7″ vs. 22.6″).
If you are North or west of town, you are likely laughing at the 24.7″ snow total. Charlottesville is above 50″ already and the west end of Henrico is probably closer to 40″. It’s been an amazing year– as we finally break our snow drought.
