Does it seem like we've had a LOT of snow this Winter?  Well, that's because we have, in fact it's the 6th snowiest season on record now!  Only 5 times in the past 141 years has there been more snow officially recorded for St. Louis.

 

Here's the list of top ten snowfall in a "season".  A season is July 1st-June 30th the following year, so it captures all of the snow we get just before the official start of Winter and into early Spring the following year. 

1   67.6    1912
2   66.0    1978
3   43.0    1914
4   42.4    1974
5   38.4    1906
6   36.8    2011
7   36.6    1982
8   36.3    1977
9   35.2    1960
10  33.7    1910
