Record January Snow

We are now 0.1" away from tying the record for snowiest January in Windsor Locks. That means we are pretty much guaranteed to break the record, especially if next Wednesday's storm stays on course. Keep in mind, records date back to 1905 and January snow totals were not available from 1997-2000.
  1. 1996: 43.1"
  2. 2011: 43.0"
  3. 1923: 40.1"
  4. 1978: 37.0"
  5. 1987: 34.0"

So far this season Windsor Locks has reported 57.2" of snow. Normal snowfall for the season to date is 20.8". That's 36.4" above average!

Last year on this day we had 14.5" of snow so far in the season.
