If this kind of rainfall should occur in freezing temperatures, many of these states below will be snap-frozen under thirty feet of snow this winter.
If you want to know how much snow would fall if a rainstorm should change to snow, just add a zero. (One inch of rain - add a zero - will turn to 10 inches of snow.) Rainfall has increased so dramatically that I’m only including accumulations of 1-1/2 inches or more.
Snowfall in the east far above normal.
