While winter’s chill is settling in across the Mississippi and Illinois Valleys, we’re still not seeing much in the way of accumulating snow.
That little cartoon isn’t the case right now, but a quick-moving disturbance did bring some flurries and light snow overnight and early Thursday morning.
We’re officially at 13.8″ of snow for the winter of 2016-2017 in the Quad Cities (that’s from Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois.) Davenport has picked up more snow (16.5″).
Last year, at this time, we were at 13.4″ in the Quad Cities.
Average at this point in the winter is 11.7″.
Since we’re at almost the same amount of snow in the Quad Cities this winter compared to last winter, it’ll be interesting to see how much snow we fall in the next few months.
We ended up with 24.1″ of snow for the winter of 2015-2016. The average snowfall in the Quad Cities for a winter is 31.6″.
