Our St. Patrick’s Day weekend snow has officially pushed us into the top 5 for snowiest seasons ever in the Quad Cities!

Officially, we picked up 2.1″ in Moline and 3.0″ in Davenport.  

Here’s a list of snowiest seasons ever: 

1. 1974/75 – 69.7″

2. 2013/14 – 65.1″

3. 1978/79 – 64.0″

4. 1959/60 – 61.5″

5. 2018/19 – 60.7″

This snow brought an end to a break from the wintry weather.  Before this weekend the last time we had snow was February 20th.  

That means this winter has provided us with (to name a few:)

The coldest temperature ever in the Quad Cities.

One of the coldest wind chills we’ve ever had.

Snowiest November ever.

Snowiest January ever.

5th snowiest season ever.

Had enough (like Andy McCray has?)  Most of this will be gone by this afternoon as March sunshine is already melting the snow away…
