Weather Rewind: December 23-29, 2012
The other story out of last week, besides the parade of snowfalls on Christmas Eve, Wednesday (mainly in the Poconos), and Saturday was the generally soggy nature of the pattern. The city picked up 1.56" of rain out of last week's storm systems -- with some two to four inch rain totals common along the Shore between Wednesday and Saturday. Atlantic City will end December with over seven inches of rain -- about three and a half inches above average.
Those storm systems last week helped lay down a nice blanket of white across the country...we're now up to 63% of the nation with at least some snow cover as of this morning. While Philadelphia has just a trace or a coating in many yards and South Jersey is still snowless for now, it's still more than three times as much real estate that's covered in at least some snow compared to this time a winter ago (19%).
