South Bend is currently on pace to have the least amount of snow for the month of December on record. The reprieve comes just a month after the city experienced record snowfall in November.
The National Weather Service says that the city has not received measurable amounts of the white stuff as of December 29. The record was set in 1912 when only 0.5 inches of snow was recorded in the entire month of December.
The NWS predicts a slight chance of snow tonight and into the day tomorrow, along with dipping temperatures that will last through New Year’s Day.
Earlier this month, we reported that South Bend has the 12th most unpredictable weather in the country for cities with a population over 100,000. South Bend is accustomed to some of the most snow of any major city in the country, which makes December’s snowfall total so unusual.
