Question: Has Rockford never received any snowfall during a winter in the past? What was the latest snowfall on record for Rockford?
From the NWS: Neither Chicago nor Rockford have seen measurable snowfall yet this cool season. Historically speaking, Chicago had seen measurable snowfall by this date 82% of the time and Rockford 75% of the time. There is slight chance this streak could be broken this week, but if not this year will go down as one of the latest first measurable snowfall years in both Chicago and Rockford!
Mark Henderson: There’s never been a winter without snow. Latest first measurable snow here was winter of 1939-40. First measurable snow that winter happened on January 7
Adam Tubbesing: The winter of 1906-1907 had a total amount of 2.8″. But rockford has never had a complete snow free winter since records were kept.
