November 2018's North America snow cover set a record for any autumn month in the satellite era. Last November's average snow cover across North America was an estimated 5.24 million square miles, topping the previous November record of 5.11 million square miles in 2014, according to data from the Rutgers University Global Snow Lab (GSL) dating to 1966. This extent of snow cover was about 861,000 square miles larger than average, over three times the size of Texas.
