FUN SNOW FACTS: Snowfall in the Twin Cities

Posted: Updated:
Meteorologist Steve Frazier Meteorologist Steve Frazier

I have heard from many of you that if we can make it to December before the ground is covered with snow, then the long Minnesota winter is not so hard to take.

From the looks of the long range models, I think a mostly bare ground on December first is in our future. Snow can vary widely here in the Upper Midwest. Some winters we don't see bare ground from October through April, and other winters, our cross country skies never leave the closet. A look at just the past 6 winters here in the Twin Cities is a perfect example.

Now that the snow season is on its way, here is a look at the "Haves" and "Have Nots" of winters in Minnesota. First of all, when do we see the flakes fly? Well, many of us can recall a few times in September where the flakes were more than a figment of our imaginations. I often field a lot of questions about snowfall. What was the biggest storm? What was the longest it ever snowed? What years did we have the most and what years did we have the least? Well, wonder no more, below is a list of some of our flakiest and least flaky milestones.
