Sioux Falls, SD breaks snowfall record

Also breaks record for shortest number of days between 4-inch snowstorms Spring to Fall.
Quote from NWS Facebook post.

“this will mark a new record for the fewest number of days between the last 4+” snowfall in the Spring and the first 4+” snowfall in the Fall. This year will only be 197 days, which would break the old record of 203 days set in 1970, and would be a full 100 days shorter than the average of 297 days for the period of record since 1893.”
