A winter for the ages. January 2011 has been one of the fiercest winter month’s we’ve seen in a long, long time.
Windsor Locks picked up 12.0″ of snow from the latest nor’easter which brings their monthly snowfall to 56.9″. About 6″ of this came from nowhere so let’s figure they actually picked up 50.9″. The Hartford area is still able to shatter the record for the snowiest month ever of 45.3″ set back in 1945.
In Bridgeport 13.0″ of new snow brought the snow depth to an incredible 26″. I believe, based on a quick look of the cooperative observation data, this is the deepest snow depth ever recorded. Bridgeport has also had the most number of days in an entire season with daily snow depths greater than 10″ or 12″.
