This last update Flint, Michigan climbed into second place in the national snow contest picking up 1.3 inches. Anchorage still holds onto the number 1 spot with 3.8 inches of snowfall for the 2014-2015 snow season. Keep in mind these are snow stats from early this morning and would have been just snow accumulated from Saturday.
We now have 9 cities with a population of 100,000 or more that have measurable snowfall on the season meaning at least 0.1 of an inch of snow. Syracuse, New York who is the favorite very season is tied for last place not even showing a trace of snowfall yet this season at their airport. I did see a few flakes falling just outside of the city though.
Last years snow champs Erie, Pa is showing a Trace of snowfall now and it will be interesting to see if they can do a repeat of last season, taking the snowiest big city crown away from the other big cities. South Bend, Indiana is tied for 3rd place with Madison, Wisconsin.
I know that there were several cities from the south that got at least a trace of snowfall but I’ll hold off a bit before adding them. Honorable mention goes out to Columbia, South Carolina and a couple other cities that I saw some pictures of that had a coating of snow on the ground.
As far as the states go, four have 2 cities that are in the top 10. Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois. No doubt that it should be another fun season and hopefully it plays out like last season did with the National Snow Contest going right down til the end of the season. Stay Tuned!
Have a Great Night All
