Cold Air Keeps Snow Around For Christmas

December 24, 2013, 6:19 PM by Brian Karstens

Cold Air Keeps Snow Around For Christmas

The extra frigid air in KELOLAND has ensured a white Christmas this year for most. 

The current snow depth map shows all of KELOLAND with snow on the ground except for a portion of south central South Dakota.  Also, the far southeast tip of the region toward Sioux City has less snowfall this Christmas, but most other areas to the north are covered in white. 

That's especially true across much of North Dakota and northern Minnesota, where the snow is plenty deep this year. To our south, Iowa and Missouri saw a significant storm over the weekend, making the landscape white. However, much of Nebraska has little snow this year.

The central and northern Rockies are doing well on snowfall and much of the Great Lakes region is white after recent storms.

These maps aren't too far off from what we would expect during a typical winter. The southern extent of the snow this year across southern plains is more unusual, but the below normal temperatures this December have allowed the storm tracks to take a more southern route.  A little melting is ahead, but not enough to take all of the snow away just yet.
