As we close out the fall season, we are looking forward to the festive holidays. But, that also can bring severe weather. While hurricane season winds down by the end of November, we move into the beginning of the cold winter in Delaware. According to the Center for Environmental Monitoring & Analysis (CEMA), January is the coldest month and February typically has the most snowfall at all stations across Delaware. (CEMA, n.d.). On average, Delaware gets 45 inches of precipitation a year, with average snowfall of 20.20” at Wilmington Airport, 13.20” in Dover and 10.50” in Lewes (CEMA, n.d.). While Delaware is not the coldest nor the snowiest state, we certainly get our fair share of winter weather events that can best be managed with some preparedness.
