Past IEM Features tagged: snowdepth
The featured chart displays daily snow depth reports for the Ames COOP site since 1964. Even with below freezing temperatures, our current snow pack has been slowly disappearing. Sun shine and dry air are able to eat away at the snow even with air temperatures below freezing. The chart nicely shows the winters with the most persistent snow cover, like 2000-2011 and 1977-1979. You can generate this chart online for other sites in the region.
