With about a month and half left, southeast Iowa has already surpassed the average snowfall this winter. State Climatologist Harry Hillaker says it has been snowier in this area, but the same cannot be said about the entire state. He says the western side of Iowa has been relatively snowless, with only a foot of snow recorded so far, while in the eastern portion, roughly 5 feet of snow has fallen this winter. In southeast Iowa, we’ve seen around 40 inches of snow; the average is 25 to 30 inches.
