Philadelphia Stuck In Low-Snow Streak

Posted: Updated:
VOORHEES, N.J. -

An arctic blast is sending chills through our region.

And while there's no doubt they'll see a ton of snow to the north of us this weekend, it looks like we won't see that much.

In fact, we haven't really seen much of it in the last couple of years. A lot of that white stuff just keeps missing our region.

Why do the big snowfalls keep missing us? FOX 29's Steve Keeley was talking about that on Thursday morning, and he got some help from FOX 29 Meteorologist Caitlin Roth.

Consider these statistics:

  • Snowiest calendar day: Jan. 25, 2013 (1.5 inches)
  • Snowfall last season: 4 inches
  • Average seasonal snowfall: 22.8 inches
  • Snowiest calendar day last season: Jan. 21, 2012 (2.3 inches)
  • Last 6-inch+ snow event: Feb. 21-22, 2011 (6 inches)
