    Agreed, although 92 was variable around this forum. Where I am in coastal CT that big noreaster was 6 inches of snow. 

    The 90s in general were a dumpster fire for snowfall.

    Yeah it depends if we're just talking about central park or not. Certainly north and west has done well in Decembers that were shutouts near the coast

    Actually if you remember it did snow a few days after Christmas in 97..it was a dusting, I dont know if that counts..The rest of the winter was a disaster until March when got our first and only snowfall.

    Well yeah getting nothing in December is pretty rare.  That was our only measurable snow until the March storm

    I had a rule of thumb in 90s. If it didnt snow by that last week of Dec it was going to be a winter with BN snow.

    There were plenty of snowless or low snow Dec even then

    Well it snowed in 98 and we were below average that winter. It barely snowed in 92 but we ended up average and of course 89-90 had early snow but well below average

    It probably does work out more times than not that no snow in December is bad news for a good winter. 94, 96, 97 and 99 were examples

    That kind of cold is incomprehensible these days.  That 76-77 and 77-78 was amazing stuff.  Pattern in 76-77 quickly collapsed in early February 77 from what I remember. I seem to remember walking home from school mid to late February and breaking a sweat.  Good old days for sure.  Not much snow 76-77, only one decent event but snow cover for a very long period of time as nothing melted from December through early February.



    Central Park did manage 5.8" in February 77 but it could have been early and then turned mild

    Any wind reports from the Sun night event? Rain underperformed but winds were gusting over 50mph on the south shore. Lots of branches down in my neighborhood too. 

    For some reason no storm reports or public information statements from Sunday night on the nws site

    that's about what I had here...winds gusted to 40-where was the wind advisory?

    They mentioned the storm was stronger than forecast so sounds like it caught them off guard

    In related news I feel like this year has had the lowest amount of wind advisories I can remember

    Alternating between light and moderate snow in Wisconsin. Strange sight after last winter, it caught me off guard even though I knew it was going to snow.

    How much you expecting?

  8. Biggest storm in nearly a decade

    Wichita Eisenhower saw 7.8" of snow yesterday. This broke the daily record of 6.8" set in 1952, and was the city's greatest snowfall since Feb 4, 2014. It was the 2nd greatest 1-day Nov snowfall (1st is 8.7" on Nov 9, 1888). Nov 2023 will likely go down as Wichita's 4th snowiest Nov on record, and the snowiest since Nov 1951.
