11 Jan 10 - Also Snowiest on Record in North America. Also Second Snowiest on Record in the Northern Hemisphere.
According to the Rutgers University Global Snow Lab, last month had the second greatest December Northern Hemisphere snow cover since records were started in 1966. North America set a record December extent at 15.98 million sq. km, and the US also set a December record at 4.16 million sq. km.
This is not an isolated event. Seventeen of the last twenty-one Decembers have had above normal snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere.
October, 2009 was the snowiest October on record in the US, and sixth snowiest in the Northern Hemisphere. Twelve of the last fifteen Octobers have had above normal snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere, similar to the pattern of the 1970s.
January, 2008 was the second snowiest January on record, and six out of the last eight Januaries have had above normal snow.
