Texas Beats Illinois in Snow Bowl

In one of the weather forums, Victor Murphy (NWS) pointed out that Midland Texas has already established a winter seasonal record for the most observed snowfall at 14.4 inches. For us non-Texans, Midland is in western Texas and almost due west of Dallas-Ft. Worth.

By comparison to that 14.4 inch total in Texas, the winter seasonal snowfall totals for cities in or around Illinois through January 9, 2012, include:

  • Chicago with 1.9 inches
  • Rockford with 1.7 inches
  • Peoria with 0.6 inches
  • Springfield with 0.1 inches
  • Champaign-Urbana with 2.3 inches
  • St. Louis MO with 2.0 inches
