Lack of snow could set records

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

It is the lack of weather that has made the headlines this year. The drought and lack of snow being the two big headlines leading the way. The 2012 snow drought continues to grow. As of Sunday (Dec. 9th) northwest Ohio has now gone 279 days without measurable snowfall. The average gap without snow from season to season is about 227 days. The lack of snowfall is standing out and may break an all time record later this week. The all time record streak of consecutive days without snowfall was in 2010 with 283 days. Meanwhile, we are now in the top 5 category for the latest measurable snowfall of the season. So far this season, we have not recorded any snow accumulation at the Toledo airport. The latest recorded measurable snowfall on record was in 2001 when light snow accumulated Christmas Day. Here are the specific numbers on the records that are in jeopardy.

Longest Snowless Streak

1) 2010--283 days

2) 1946--280 days

3) 2012--279 days+ (as of Dec. 9th)

4) 2001--274 days

5) 1999--271 days

6) 1898--269 days

 

Latest 1st Measurable Snowfall

1) 2001--December 25th

2) 1948--December 19th

3) 1923--December 13th

4) 1944--December 10th

5) 2012--December ?

These are the numbers from the Toledo airport and local statistics do vary. In fact a small area in Hillsdale County Michigan and areas between Findlay and Upper Sandusky did see a dusting to a quarter of an inch of snow during Superstorm Sandy in late October.

Toledo's records go back to 1871 but snowfall measurements have only been recorded since 1891.
