You may or may not even want to think about it right now, since it's the middle of August, but did you know that realistically - the first accumulating snowfall (which is .1 inch or greater)- could be only weeks away for some U.S. cities.

The Weather Channel says that September is when several western and northern cities in the Lower 48 have seen their earliest first accumulating snow of the season.

  • Here in Cleveland, our earliest first snow occurred on October 2, 2003 (.3 inches)
  • The average first snowfall in Cleveland is November 9.
  • Last year, the first measurable snow was October 17.
