    Weak-Moderate El Nino 2018-2019

    Wheeler Peak is the high point in New Mexico at 13,167 feet. I know you are generalizing, but you might want to not get too carried away in your stats.

    You have more snow on the ground on November 19 than the vast majority of the subforum will have at any time this winter.

    Nice, 3-5" in the forecast down here.

    List your top 5 winter storms

    Without repeating what others have said I will add April 4, 1987 in SE Ohio to the list. We had 24" on the ground of the wettest heaviest snow I have ever seen accumulate. It was 36° the entire time it snowed. The first 4 hours or so of snow during the daylight hours melted on contact, but once evening set in it started sticking to everything. This was basically a 24 hour snowfall so the rates were fairly impressive. It melted only a couple of days later, but I will never forget that one.

    2018-2019 LES Season

    I am sandwiched in between the NW flow areas just to my south and SW flow areas just to my north on the east side of Lake Michigan. Average 80-85" a year here.

    I am jealous (sort of). Pretty cool to see snow reappearing in our subforum.

    I am going to miss the updates from the Spring Lake/Muskegon area. I guess I won't have to be disappointed reading how 20-30 minutes north of me got twice as much snow as I did.

    GRR pulled the trigger recently also. Makes the DTW streak look even more impressive now because it stands out even more.

    1.5"+ in SW MI over the last week with places over 4" and we go into D0. Interesting.

    Just got back from vacation earlier this week and we spent two days in NH staying in an old farm house with no AC. It was 95 the day we arrived. I would agree with you. 93 and no AC is a little on the toasty side, especially in the evening as you are trying to go to sleep and things haven't cooled off for the night yet.

    Wunderground says Grayling hit 33° last night.

    Similar to what Stebo saw last night only on the opposite side of the state.

    Mount Agung volcano

    I guess this just went silent. I guess that is good for the people in that area.

    For those of you not liking the current weather pattern this is what GRR had to say today. The first week of April (1st through 7th) is very likely to end up colder than normal. Curiously, over the past 30 years the first week of April was colder than the NCEI normals nearly twice as frequently as it was warmer than those normals. So, this should be no surprise. If fact, in the past 10 years only 2008 and 2012 were warmer than normal during the first week of April.

    Still too early to know. Several recent few years have seen early blooms, but this year is definitely colder right now so development is slower right now. My daffodils are barely breaking through the surface.
