Snowfall Totals for Winter 2012-13, So FarJanuary 16th, 2013 at 10:38 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Below are winter 2012-13 snowfall totals via spotters with NWS, CoCoRHas & our own WLFI observers as of January 16.
Snowfall varies from 6″ BELOW normal in Warren & Benton to southern Jasper counties to 6″ ABOVE normal in our southeastern areas.
At WLFI, I have recorded 6.2″ for the winter. By January 16, we should have already had 9.5″, so we are running about 3.3″ BELOW normal for the winter, snowfall-wise.
Normal snowfall across the viewing area by now would equal 8-11″, but varies from 2.6 to over 16″.
My parents, 35 miles southwest of Bloomington, Indiana, have had 18″ for the winter, while Chicago, Illinois has had just 1.3″ at O’Hare. There has been more snowfall at Dallas, than Chicago this year.
Chicago & Warren, Benton to southern Jasper counties are in a hole of much lighter snowfall when much of the Midwest & Corn Belt has received normal to above normal snowfall.
