Will the Winter of 2011 / 2012 be a record breaker?
It’s looking that way so far, says KSHB TV waether wonk Gary Lezak.
"To date, we’ve had .4 of an inch of snow," Lezak says. "And the lowest snowfall ever was 4.5 inches in the winter of 1922-1923. So we’ve got 4.1 inches just to get to the lowest season ever, but there’s no sign of that now."
Hence the bear market on show shovels, snow blowers, driveway ice melting chemicals – even winter coats!
However, that could change.
It’s getting late but "I still think it’s going to happen, but the next three weeks are critical," Lezak says. "I think there are two or three storm systems coming between now and February 10th."
