Snowfall Summary - January '09

January/s storm track continued to favor New England/s coastal and piedmont stations.

Concord (CON)...ranked first among all contest forecast stations...measured 186% of their monthly normal (17.8")...just shy of the 193% relative to normal snowfall observed in December. January/s 33.1" snowfall is 57% of their total winter snowfall (D-J-F-M). So far this winter...CON has 60.7" in the snow bank.

Boston (BOS) was second again in January...with 185% of normal monthly snowfall (12.8"). Boston ranked second in December with 316% of normal (8"). 58% of their normal winter snowfall occurred in Janaury. BOS two-month total stands @ 49".

Other notable monthly snowfall were Bridgeport (BDR) with 13.7" (183% monthly normal) and Bangor (BGR) with 175%.

Fifteen stations observed more than their normal monthly snowfall for January...including Raleigh (RDU) @ 125%.

Biggest losers were in the mid-Atlantic region again this month...and as was the case all of last season.

Green => Top 25%
