Meteorlogical Winter: One Of The Snowiest And Coldest

Posted: Updated:

If it was rankings for a local high school, we'd be cheering. But instead, it's the rankings for this year's meteorlogical winter that you may not feel like celebrating.

Between Dec. 1 and Feb. 28, or the meteorlogical winter, The Quad Cities ranked first place for snow (53.8 inches); second place for the average low temperature (6.9 degrees); third place for the average overall temperature (16.7 degrees) and fourth place for the average high temperature (26.5 degrees).

So in other words, it was one of the coldest and snowiest winters in the Quad Cities, ever!

That doesn't include the snowfall over the weekend. According to the National Weather Service, snowfall amounts on March 1 and 2 ranged from 6 inches in Calamus, Iowa to 3.7 at the Quad City Airport in Moline and 3 inches in Galva, Ill.
