A Snowless October For Much of Nation

November 12, 2010; 10:27 AM ET

October was much less snowy than it should have been in the Continental United States. Here's a map I made of normal October snowfall (colors) vs. October 2010 snowfall, as reported by the official climate stations in AccuWeather's database. As you can see, the coverage of non-zero reports is much smaller than it should have been.

Denver had no snow, something that hasn't happened in 88.5% of previous years of record. Flakes haven't been seen at all in most of the country. I'm not sure how much snow Montreal, Quebec, Canada normally has by now but I bet it's a lot more than the 1.2" they got at the end of October.
