Temperatures are 6 degrees above normal and we are still sitting just over 6″ below normal for snowfall this month with only .3″. After this week we will most likely be over 6 degrees above normal and well above normal for precipitation.

This December so far is in the 3rd warmest average on record since 1952.

I think we have a good chance of being the warmest average on record for this month!

Also, we are in the top 10 on record for the least snow. We’ve received 1.8 inches in the snow season so far, with the majority of that in November.

This is the slowest start to the season since 2015, and the 4th slowest start since 1952.
