Thinking Snow During This Oasis

RaleighSnowTilesOh sure, the next couple of days will be a welcome respite. For snow lovers, however, don’t give up hope. Last night WRAL’s Greg Fishel presented a graph he made. It’s a normal distribution of local annual snowfall since 1940. The statistics are interesting, as 50% of the snowfalls fall between January 11 and February 18. Tomorrow marks the midway point of the snow season, and the historical odds of having measurable snow decrease quickly as February progresses.

Don’t lose hope, though, in March. The ~14” we got in 1980 were an anomaly, but the atmosphere during that time of year is still capable of imposing itself plenty (1992 ACC Tournament, anyone?)!
