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?
WINTER'S LAST MEASURABLE SNOW
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!
