Many who love snow aren't exactly getting the best kind of Valentine's Day gift from Mother Nature this year.
Just 27.3% of the Continental U.S. was covered in snow on Monday -- and that's including some snowfall that fell in the northeast on Sunday.
But even with that additional blanket, the nation sits at the third-least amount of snow cover on Valentine's Day since at least 2003, according to the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center.
Only 2015 (24.1%) and 2005 (23.4%) have had less snow on the ground as a nation since then.
A little more snow will fall in the West Tuesday and Wednesday and then more of the map will fill in with snow later this week as a storm system drops several inches of snow from parts of the Central Plains to the mid-Mississippi Valley and southern Great Lakes.
