Record snowfall today helped us surpass last year totalDecember 29th, 2012 at 5:39 pm by Tara Hastings under Weather
Apparently we are making up for last years lack of snow. Today we had a record snowfall of 2.2 inches which puts us at 10.6 inches for December. After our big storm Wednesday and our snowfall this morning we’ve already seen more snow than we did last year.
This morning accumulations varied with a few spots in Mercer county picking up five additional inches while most locations saw about 2 to 3 inches. Here’s a look at Live Doppler 2HD’s snowfall accumulation. Official National Weather Service amounts can be found by clicking here.
The light snow fell mostly during the early morning hours when many people weren’t on the roads making it a bit easier and faster to clean up. Many of you sent us some great pictures via our reportit feature at wdtn.com and here are a few of the pretty scenes.

Thank you for the pictures and please keep sending them in! We’ll use them on the air and in our weather blogs. Don’t forget to put your name and location when sending in photos.
We’ll see a few flurries tonight but little to no accumulation is expected. Clouds will stick around however it’s going to be cold tonight with lows in the teens.
On Sunday it will be dry but chilly. We’ll finally see some sunshine too as an area of high pressure nudges northward.
Clouds begin to increase ahead of our next storm system. This one will bring us another chance for some light snow. By early Monday morning we’ll see some cloud cover with the snow staying off to our west.
By the afternoon Monday the snow will be flying and it looks like we’ll see another 1 to 2 inches across the area.
The snowfall amounts may need to be tweaked as we get closer to the event. So please be sure to check back here and on wdtn.com.
