This is already Iowa’s snowiest December on record. Today’s expected snowfall may put us on the books as the snowiest month -ever- in Iowa, according to state climatologist Harry Hillaker.We’ve already gotten an average of 21-point-1 inches of snow statewide this month. The snowiest month ever was 22-point-2 inches in February of 1962. If the forecast is accurate, Hillaker says we’ll beat that all-time record today.The state should average about three inches today, with some areas getting only one or two inches, others getting seven or eight inches. Looking over the decades of records, Hillaker says winters that started out with heavy snowfall often had -average- snowfalls in the second half.The previous record for snowiest December was surpassed last week. It was 17-point-7 inches in December of 1961.
