2019 sets Veteran’s Day Snowfall Record

Cold and snowy weather has been the story all across mid-Missouri today. Snowfall amounts have been pretty variable as well. Many near Jefferson city and south saw under an inch. However, some reports out of Columbia and points north have been as high as 4".

The official snowfall total at Columbia Regional Airport was 1.1" as of this afternoon. This steps well ahead of the old record of 0.4" set back in 1995.

Early-November snowfall, especially of this breadth and magnitude is uncommon. The reason for the cold and snow is due to yet another intrusion from the polar vortex. The extreme push of cold air, crashing into the warm moist air, from over the weekend, created the perfect recipe for snow this morning.

If you're looking for another round of spring-like weather, you're out of luck. Temperatures will slowly warm into the 40s over the next several days, but still remain some 10-15 degrees below average.
