Record October Snow At North Platte

North Platte, Nebraska had already broken their October snowfall record before the same storm that hit Colorado put down another 13.5 inches ending yesterday. The monthly total of 31.5 inches is double the old record of 15.7 set in 1969. In addition, October's snowfall already exceeds North Platte's average seasonal snowfall of 29.8 inches!

The storm that put down all that snow is still deepening over Hudson Bay with a minimum pressure of 956 mb and a cold front to southern Mexico.
That front produced a 7 degree temperature drop, winds gusting to 38.9 knots, and waves to 15.7 feet at buoy 42055 in The Bay Of Campeche.
