Billings, Montana Only Big City Above Normal Snow to Date

Wow! Billings, Montana is the only city above the normal snow to date out of 80 plus cities that I keep track of during the snow season. Remember, these are large cities with a population of 100,000 plus as of the 2010 census. That means that as of this last snow update 80 Big cities are below their normal snowfall for this time in the snow season. That will be changing pretty soon though.

Billings, MT is only 0.1 of an inch above the normal right now. Billings currently has 12.6 inches of snow on the season and the normal is 12.5 inches. All of the other 80 cities are below normal snowfall to date.

Even the cities from states in Texas and North Carolina are below their normal snow to date. Below are most of the cities that I keep track of during the snow season. Some I check every day once the snow starts falling and other cities every now and then if I see they may be getting some snow ;)

Cold air is moving in from Canada and like I mentioned, the chances are several of the cities listed below will be playing catch up and passing their normal snow totals. Anchorage, Alaska has the biggest snow deficit right now being 14.6 inches behind the normal to date. The normal for Anchorage is 23 inches and as of this last snow update, they have 8.4 inches so far for the snow season.

Buffalo, NY, Erie, PA, and Salt Lake City, UT are all about 10 inches behind their normal snow totals to date. I could go on and on but I won’t, lol. In other words, the 2017-2018 snow season has been a mild one but the good news is, that is about to change. Well, if you are a snow lover that is.

Have a great day all and as always, See Snow – Drive Slow. Stay safe ;)
