Days since last Winter Storm Warning

Posted: 11 Dec 2017 05:33 AM

Significant snowfall events continue to be elusive this season for Iowa. The featured map displays the number of days since the last issuance of a Winter Storm Warning by NWS Forecast Office. All of the Iowa shown forecast offices have yet to issue such an alert this season and Davenport has gone a full year without issuance. Of course, the highlight of the map is the comparison with the deep south offices that just wrapped up a significant winter storm for their area. Snow was experienced from Houston to DC. Amazing to think that a place like Mobile, AL experienced a significant winter snow before Iowa did.

Good = 13
Bad = 1
Abstain = 1
