-45.5


Record set this winter:

Western Michigan University only had 29.2 inches of snow this season. This is a record for the lowest seasonal snowfall. The previous record for the lowest snowfall was 44.7 inches during the 2020-2021 winter season.

There was not one day in February when Western Michigan University reported at least 1 inch of snow on the ground at observation time, and only four days when a Trace was reported on the ground. This is the first time this has happened since records began at Western Michigan University. The average number of February days with snow on the ground is 24. In addition, the majority of the years saw snow on the ground every day in February. The current mild conditions are therefore highly unusual.

There were only 32 days for which snow was reported on the ground at observation time. This is a record for the lowest number of days with at least trace amounts of snow on the ground at observation time, beating the record low of 59 days which was set just last year (another very mild winter). The average number of days with snow on the ground is 89.

There were only 44 days in which snowfall was reported during the entire winter season. The record for the lowest number of days with reported snowfall is 48, set during the 2011-12 winter.
