February Thaw Just What KELOLAND Needed

February 19, 2014, 5:39 AM by Scot Mundt

February Thaw Just What KELOLAND Needed

Much of KELOLAND has been dealing with the cold and snow this winter. So a February thaw is just what many needed. While we've had our fair share of snow this winter -- 32 inches in Sioux Falls -- but others have been dealing with a lot more.

Some of the hardest hit areas are to our east and north.  Seems like Chicago has been getting hit with snow constantly.  It's tallied to almost sixty-eight inches so far, almost three and a half feet above average. North to Madison and Minneapolis, the snow amounts are in the upper forties.  To our north, Grand Forks is at forty-five inches, almost a foot above average while Fargo sits at slightly more than seven inches below.

Other amounts across the plains include, below average amounts in Omaha and Denver. In fact, Chicago is real close to three times the amount of snow Denver has had this year.

Whether it's little snow or a lot of snow this winter, there will be areas in the upper plains and Midwest either dealing with flooding or drought as we head into the planting season this spring.
