More Snow in October than November?

Posted: Updated:

The only precipitation that we are tracking through the final days of November will come in the form of rain. We will stay well-above freezing, and above-average despite falling temperatures through late week. This puts us in a unique position when it comes to our snowfall totals so far this fall.

Lexington recorded the first snowfall of the season on October 29th with a trace. We haven't seen any snow since. So, October 2017 was snowier than this past month. The last time October featured more snow than November in Lexington was in 1942. This odd stat also occurred in 1925, 1918, and 1910. Lexington averages 0.3 inches of snow during the month of November, while October's average is zero. (In case you were wondering, February is typically the snowiest month with an average of 4.6 inches.)

The average date for the first trace of snow in Lexington is November 12th. The first measurable snow (greater than or equal to 0.1 inches) typically comes around November 29th. And we normally pick our first inch of snow on December 19th.

The large-scale pattern has kept the cold air bottled up across Canada recently. Models are coming into agreement that we may be tracking a pattern change that will bring winter to Kentucky within the next ten to fourteen days. It's still too soon to say how strong this approaching storm; the strength will determine how cold it will get and if we will pick up any snow.
