This winter has presented quite the upset in meteorological worlds: Seattle has out-snowed king-of-winter Minneapolis for much of the winter.

Since Jan. 1, Seattle has had 10.2 inches of snow, while Minneapolis has had just 8.4 inches -- including just 0.3" in February! It's the first time since 1968 that Seattle has had more snow between Jan .1 and Feb. 28 than the Twin Cities.

Of course, Minneapolis having a record-snow-drought in February helps us out.
All is not lost for Minnesota though, Minneapolis did have 15.8" of snow in December -- so for the season they are well ahead. But Seattle taking "2 out of 3" is a pretty rare accomplishment.

What is also a rare accomplishment? Having Chicago go the same January-February period with no snow on the ground!

And no, you can't have the winter back, Midwest.

Other winter tidbits

As we've been watching like a hawk how Seattle would finish up not just our snowy February, but our rainy February, the final tally has the Emerald City at 8.85" of rain/melted snow. That's the second-wettest February tally on record, only coming up behind 9.11" in 1961.

It's also the third-consecutive month with below-normal temperatures -- the first time that's happened since May-July in 2012.

And with an average temperature from December through February of 39.1 degrees, it's the 9th coldest "meteorological winter" (Dec-Feb) on record at Sea-Tac Airport.

Finally, counting the inch of snow Seattle had in December, we've caught up and tied Portland for seasonal snowfall this year -- an impressive rally:

Long range models suggest March will begin staying relatively cool as well!

Better watch out, Minneapolis. It can still snow in Seattle in March too!
