North Platte October Snowfall Summary of 2009

An early active pattern developed during mid October of 2009 which brought a series of strong weather systems into Western and North Central Nebraska.  This early active weather pattern set the stage for a long winter.  By the end of October, the city of North Platte had measured 4.29 inches of precipitation which fell mostly as snow.  In 2009, the city of North Platte almost doubled the all time record of snowiest October by recording 30.3 inches of snowfall.  The previous record was set in 1969, when 15.7 inches of snow had fallen.  Elsewhere across the region, equally impressive snow reports were noted, especially for residents along the Interstate 80 corridor.
