2. 1949, 63.5″

3. 2008, 23.3″

4. 1995, 11.0″

5. 1954, 13.4″

A new high temperature record was set today, November 7, 2016, at 66 degrees, breaking the most recent record set in the year 2008.  Will snow in 2016-2017 break a record as well?

Begin to think now about your winter plans, emergency preparedness and how you will get around in the event of snow.  What plans are in place for your children if schools are cancelled due to snow?  Will you go to work or work from home?
