Record snowfall in many areas, but the Weather Channel tries to downplay it. _________________
Earliest snowfall in Houston on record.
Earliest measurable snowfall in Monroe, Louisiana, on record, breaking the previous record by 10 days..
Snowiest start to the snow season in Wichita, Kansas on record.
Only the third year on record that Kansas City saw three measurable snowfalls by November 12.
On Nov 11-12, the 4.4 inches of snowfall in Amarillo, Texas, hit 12 days earlier than the average. However, the Weather Channel called it a”little” earlier.
Instead of calling these occurrences for what they were; record-breaking snowfall, the Weather Channel headline called it “odd November snow.”
At least they did admit that U.S. snow cover is almost double what it was last year on Nov. 13, and noticeably more widespread compared.

“In the article it documents the snow to Big Bend National Park on the Rio Grande,” Ryan points out. “Since it was snowing there, radar also indicated a considerable area of snow in Mexico on the other side of the river and the bend!”
