Last Day of Winter

Spring officially arrives in the Quad Cities at 6:02 a.m. CDT Wednesday. 

Unfortunately, this doesn't mean the winter chill will be ending anytime soon.  On Monday, we picked up 0.5" of snow in the Quad Cities pushing our winter total to 30.1", which is a little above average. 

While we'll see plenty of sunshine through the rest of this week, a storm system late in the weekend could bring us the more snow or a wintry mix. 

If we pick up measurable snow this upcoming Sunday (March 24th), how would that stack up with the last measurable snows of the past five winters?


2011-2012     0.9"     March 4, 2012

2010-2011     0.3"     February 26, 2011

2009-2010     2.9"     March 20, 2010

2008-2009     1.1"     April 5, 2009

2007-2008     1.5"     March 27, 2008

The latest measurable snow on record in the Quad Cities fell on May 3, 1935.  Yes, we've had measurable snow in May!
