We’re Up to the 2nd Snowiest Season All Time in St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- Just when we got rid of most of the snow from this historic winter of snowfall, we woke up to more snow on the ground again Sunday in central Minnesota.
The National Weather Service says St. Cloud received 2.6 inches of snow this past weekend.
That brings us to 86.6 inches of snow now for the entire season going back to last fall. This is now officially the second snowiest season in recorded history in St. Cloud.
The all-time snowiest season is 87.9 inches of snow in 1964-1965.
We average three inches of snow for the month of April, so this weekend's snow event is not all that unusual. If we wanted to get into the top 10 snowiest Aprils on record we'd have to get over nine inches of snow.
Snowfall totals by the numbers:
86.6 inches - 2nd snowiest season
55.1 inches - Tied for snowiest winter (Dec, Jan, Feb)
22.5 inches - 5th snowiest December
18.6 inches - 10th snowiest January
22.7 inches - 5th snowiest March
