We just had the largest 2-Day November Snowfall in 120 Years

Chicago gets its largest November snowfall in 120 years.

The season's first snowfall dropped as much as 17 inches across Chicago's northern suburbs, and the total of 11.2 inches at O'Hare International Airport made it the largest November snowfall in 120 years.

According to the weather service, this was the second-largest November snowstorm, behind only a 12-inch snowfall Nov. 25-26, 1895.

This month is catapulted to the fourth snowiest November on record with more than a week remaining. The three snowiest Novembers were: 1940 with 14.8 inches, 1895 with 14.5 inches and 1951 with 14.3 inches.

We Just Had the Largest 2-Day November Snowfall in 120 Years

If you had to shovel all that snow out of your driveway, that probably doesn't sound so great right now.
We Just Had the Largest 2-Day November Snowfall in 120 Years
 

Our Friday and Saturday snowfall ranks as the second largest November snowstorm on record for northern Illinois, according to the National Weather Service, second only to 12 inches dropped in 1895.

This is how our weekend snow stacks up to history, as measured at O’Hare Airport:

  • Nov. 25-26, 1895, 12 inches
  • Nov. 20-21, 2015, 11.2 inches
  • Nov. 6-7, 1951, 9.3 inches
  • Nov. 26-27, 1975, 8.6 inches
  • Nov. 27-28, 1891, 6.0 inches

Saturday also gave us the third largest single-day November snowfall.

  • Nov. 6, 1951, 8.0 inches
  • Nov. 26, 1975, 7.5 inches
  • Nov. 21, 2015, 7.0 inches
  • Nov. 26, 1895, 7.0 inches
  • Nov. 27, 1891, 5.8 inches

This November is now the fourth snowiest on record for Chicago, according to the NWS.

An arctic blast is driving temperatures down for Sunday, but gradually we’ll warm up during the week. Up to this point, November has been unseasonably warmer than average. Which means we ultimately could have one of the snowiest Novembers on record as well as one of the warmest.

How about that?
