There were a couple of cool threads for interesting stats and records but they were seasonal... So I figure we have 1 main thread to come back to for it now.

Summer 2013 Interesting stats.

Sept - November 2013 Interesting stats.

I'll start....

If Bridgeport still has 10" or more snow on the ground Sunday morning it will be the longest streak on record with a consecutive snowpack that much.

2nd longest streak staying below 40°F

Today ties the record longest streak for the minimum temp staying below 26°F

Memphis hasn't seen an inch of snow (not sleet) in 1,176 days. Will that change today? Nope. Congrats Huntsville and Birmingham (again).

Melbourne hasn't seen snow/sleet in 10,443 days, but your stat is more surprising.

10,443 days hehe

2013/14 was our least snowy winter on record here with 3 cm, but 2014 was the first calendar year on record when London Heathrow didn't see any snow or even sleet falling at all. The 0 stands out a bit against some relatively big years in recent times:

Islip has had a snowpack of 9+ inches since Jan 27, the longest on record. It ends today, unfortunately.

Here is a list of places in the contiguous USA which have had an average low of -10F (-23C) or less this February. I'm assuming that it's pretty uncommon, considering that Fairbanks at 64N sometimes has trouble managing this.

Mt. Washington, NH
Saranac Lake, NY
International Falls, MN

My town has the highest diurnal range (11.9C) for the rainfall (1470 mm) that I can find anywhere. Might be higher somewhere, but I can't find it.

Might also be the place where snow falls are close (within 5 km every year), but is the rarest (once every 35-40 years).

That's where I was 10,443 days ago. Remember it well -people were excited.
