Monday’s 1.4 inches of snow fails to break year snowfall record

Despite the recent snow fall, this winter still ranks third in overall accumulated snowfall in the Chicagoland area, The Chicago Tribune reports.

As of now, this year comes in at an even 82 inches, an amount that fails to overtake the snowfall record of 82.3 inches set by 1977-1978.

Chicago is not out of the woods yet. The latest recorded one inch snowfall in Chicagoland was May 3, 1907.
“It would be unlikely but not impossible that we would catch up with that number,” Ben Deubelbeiss of the weather service said.

However, Monday’s bizarre weather did set another climatology record. It is the first 24-hour period on record that reached 60 degrees and produced more than an inch of snow.
