First snow of the season coming…a bit late

11-16-cover

Columbus (WCMH) – It is going to be hard to believe, especially when you are enjoying Spring-like numbers on Friday, but we do have a good chance of seeing some very light snow showers/flurries this weekend.

It is not abnormal as all to get snowfall in November here in Central Ohio, in fact, we have had several years since 2000 with measurable snowfall in Columbus.

 

How rare is it to not get any trace of snow in November?

Very rare!!!  Since records go back in 1885, we have had only 6 November’s that did not receive any trace of snow.

 

Since 2000, when have we had our first trace of snowfall?
