Records tied or set this winter:

1. A daily snow depth record was set on November 1 (a trace; this is the first time snow has been observed on the ground on this date since records began in 1998).

2. 3.6 inches of snow fell on January 31. This was the highest daily snowfall that was measured for the entire winter season. This was the first winter season on record that a daily snowfall of at least 4.0 inches did not occur.

3. The seasonal snowfall total was 44.7 inches. This is the lowest seasonal total on record. The previous record for the lowest seasonal snowfall total was 49.5 inches set during the 1999-2000 season.

4. Kalamazoo had only a trace of snow during the month of March. This is the least snowiest March on record. The previous record for the least snowiest March on record is 0.3 inches in 2000.

Snowfall is measured by Dr. Robert Ruhf and Amber Hutson at Western Michigan University, with occasional assistance from Mark McLain.

Dr. Robert Ruhf is a Senior Research Associate within the Mallinson Institute for Science Education at Western Michigan University. He is primarily interested in snow, but has other interests as well. He recently co-authored a book called Ten Days: An American Visits a Secondary School in Northern Uganda.
