Dear Tom,
Has Chicago ever gone through winter without snow?
Matt Downing

Dear Matt,

It never happened and almost certainly never will. Chicago climatologist Frank Wachowski scanned the city’s entire snow record for the winter of 1884-85 and found that the city had never experienced a snow-free month, let alone an entire cold season, during the December-February meteorological winter.
The city’s snowiest winters occurred about a century ago, during a snow drought that spanned consecutive winters of 1920-21 and 1921-22. The first winter produced just 9.8 inches and was followed by just 11.5 inches the following season. Most recently, the city recorded just 19.8 inches in the winter of 2011-12, the smallest drop since the winter of 1948-49, when just 14.3 inches were measured.
