Muskegon MI has made a hell of a run towards respectability, after bottoming out at a -26.3" snowfall departure to date on 1/2, using the Monday update method. Of course 47.6" of snow so far this January helps a lot. :lol:

12/5: 7.1" (-4.9")
12/12: 12.4" (-5.5")
12/19: 12.5" (-12.2")
12/26: 13.8" (-18.5")
1/2: 14.0" (-26.3")
1/9: 28.0" (-20.5")
1/16: 39.1" (-18.0")
1/23: 61.4" (-2.4")

We sure have improved our totals! November and December were crap and January has been very good here. The fact that we've gotten over 48 inches of snow this month and are still below avg. shows just how much the first part of winter sucked here (thus my whining then). We have a deeper snowpack now than most areas in the Lower Penin., as well as many areas of the U.P.!

I'm a little behind with this, but bear with me. I'll do the usual "Monday update" version and then another updated version through 4PM today. Grabbing a beer and getting to work...

Just like that, DTW is now 10.7" above normal at 37.5"! Talk about a turnaround. 28.2" of snow has fallen in the last 4 weeks.

With this mega dump at ORD, they have basically assured themselves of another 50+ season (they're at 47.5" right now), which would make it the 4th in a row. That has never happened since records have been kept.

Other than the disaster at Sault Ste Marie :yikes: , all U.S. Midwest sites are in the green (above normal to date). First time everyone has been there together at once all winter. :)

I certainly don't follow the weather up there, but it seems like their totals hardly gone up when I do these updates. Maybe a reporting error?

Across the river in SSM, Ontario the total through Jan 31 is 70.8" so something is definitely a little fudged up with the Michigan side. Unless there have been some super localized LES on the east side of the St. Mary's River.

Hey now, I can do addition and conversions you know? :P

But yes, a lousy season so far up there. Yep, let's hope for the best up there in the next 2 months.

Nope, this is completely true. Sault Ste Marie, MI can't seem to get anything this year, and really neither can northern lower Michigan north of M-72 (including the Gaylord area). Most spots are well below normal in snowfall, with some exceptions of course (Alpena is doing OK). I just broke 60" for the season here in town with the snow this morning, and should be well over 100. Second year in a row with slack snowfall up this way.

It really is shocking though a lot of their snow is LES and orientation of the banding is key.

Absolutely! The mean flow over the past 2 years has been almost due north, with some interations of north/northwest, both owing to persistent moderate/strong negative NAO signature so prevalent all of last winter, and through December of this winter. Both flow regimes obviously target locations well west of the Soo. However, we have also seen our fair share of west/southwest flow regimes up that way, targeting the Canadian SOO but again bypassing Sault Ste Marie as that flow comes off land. It's going to be interesting to see the next few months as northern Michigan almost always finds a way to make up quickly for lost time (last winter being a huge exception up this way).

WSBT reports that South Bend has had 91.5" of snow so far this season, thanks to a record setting LES in early January adding to the total. Number one year for season total was 1977-78 with 172" and then 1981-82 with 135.2 inches.

Will we ever officially have another below normal snowfall winter? It looks like winter climate is RAPIDLY changing. At KYNG, the top four snowiest winters on record have all occurred in the past 5 years:

1. 102.8 2007-2008
2. 90.2 2006-2007
3. 88.0 2010-2011
4. 86.5 2008-2009
5. 85.3 1950-1951

Last winter (2009-2010) was also well above normal at 75.7 inches.

The snow depth this morning was 10" in Sault Ste Marie, 14" in Flint, and 13" in Detroit. That is unheard of in February.
