Drier than normal January, but a winter storm looms Feb. 8-9

February 6, 2010

1.31″ of precipitation (and 8.9″ of snow) fell during the month of January. Snowfall was 1.2″ below the average snowfall of 10.1″ in the month of January, and 0.58″ of precipitation below the January average of 1.89″.

This is consistent with El Niño conditions that dominated the month, causing most of the nation’s precipitation to be redirected to California, the Gulf Coast, and the Eastern Seaboard.

A winter storm is expected to bring 3″ to 6″ of snow to the area Monday night. However, there is a chance the storm will bring over 6″ of snow to the area.
