Snowcover not going anywhere
Tue, 11 Feb 2014 04:13:49 GMT —
If it seems like it's been a long time since we've seen green grass, it's because it HAS been a long time!
To be exact, it's been 64 days in Flint (see image 1).
This is a statistic that's based on at least 1" of snow on the ground at Flint's Bishop Airport.
This puts us 5th on the all-time list for most consecutive days with snowcover.
We're still 24 days away from the top spot which still belongs to the brutal winter of 1962-63 with 88 consecutive days of snowcover.
However, 3rd place will be a cinch for us to achieve.
That spot belongs to the year 2001 when snow stayed on the ground for 67 days, ending on February 9th of that year.
So we only have 3 days to go to tie that record, and with temperatures forecast to stay below freezing for at least the next 6 days, we will blow right by it!
There is some indication that highs will reach the 40s to possibly near 50° 8 to 10 days from now, but that's a long range forecast that's subject to change.
