Although we have experienced a large number of blizzard warnings this winter season, snowfall in Fargo-Moorhead has been below average. As of today, we have received just 34.9 inches of snow, which is below the average of 50.1 inches over the past three decades.

However, there have been many heavy snowfalls in the Upper Midwest this winter. Minneapolis snowfall this winter stands at 69.8 inches, which is well above its average of 53.8 inches. St. Cloud has gotten 75.5 inches, which is way above its average of 44.9 inches. Duluth has received 125.3 inches, which is far above its average of 84.0 inches, and ranks as their fifth-snowiest season on record.

Sioux Falls, S.D., at 45.3 inches, is right near its average of 43.3 inches. Up the road at Grand Forks, there has been 60.3 inches of snow this winter compared to an average of 46.3 inches.

So, it is not the case that our region has been in a winter snowfall drought. Overall, there has been abundant snow this winter. It is just that none of the big storms have hit the Fargo area directly.
