Northern Carroll County Snowfall

A comparison of the seasonal snowfall between here at my house (extreme north central Carroll County) and the COOP station in Millers (extreme northeast Carroll County).

We’re both at about the same elevation, Millers is 860 feet. I believe it is around 800 ft here at the house, although we have lots of nearby hills and valleys.

Comparing the seasons of common data, we seem to track each other very closely, so I think it may be a good proxy for my years of missing data, and gauging what the snowfall range is here from season to season. Miller’s has a mean snowfall of 34.1″.
