Blizzard Shatters November Snowfall Records
The Quad Cities set a record during yesterday's snowstorm! According to the National Weather Service, the storm dumped 13.3 inches of snow on the Quad Cities. The most snowfall in a one day period for the month of November.
The previous record stood for 43 years. On November 26, 1975, the Quad Cities endured a snowstorm that dumped 8.4 inches of snow throughout the region. Yesterday's total eclipsed that record by five inches.
In addition, Sunday's storm helped the region set the record for most snow in the Quad Cities for the month of November. The total is now 18.4 inches of snow this November, almost three inches more snow than when the old record was set in 1974. I know, this isn't as impressive a record as the other one.
Frankly, for a weather setting November, we can't complain that much. November's been cold, but any snow until yesterday was more or less a nuisance that didn't stick around very long. This stuff, well it's probably not going anywhere anytime soon.
