Two Weeks Until Possible Snow Season
Time to bring in the lawn furniture and make sure the snow blower is ready to go.
It was on this date – September 3, 1974 – Sioux Falls recorded its earliest freeze ever. The temp dropped to a chilly 31 degrees that morning.
According to the National Weather Service, the first freeze in Sioux Falls normally occurs around the 25th of the month.
Actually, when you think about, we shouldn’t be surprised by that little weather factoid, given that the “possible” snow season for Sioux Falls arrives a mere two weeks from tomorrow.
On September 18, 1929 Sioux Falls received a trace of snow.
The earliest measurable snowfall occurred on September 28, 1985. That day the city recorded just shy of an inch (.9).
If you’re new to the area, you’re now probably asking yourself,
“My gosh, how long does the ‘possible’ snow season run here in this part of the country?”
Sioux Falls has recorded snow as late as May 31st. It happened in the year 1954.
So I guess it’s not too early to bring out the Christmas albums!
