    The March Long Range Discussion Thread, Winter's Last Stand

    No, the highest April total at BWI was 9.4” on 4/1/1924. Region-wide though, the biggest event overall was 4/3/1915 which delivered 10” to RIC. Snowfall contest thread has more info on that one.

    April 1 Winter Storm

    I thought I had exclusive rights to April snowstorm threads.

    How did IAD get so much snow in April 1990? Maybe we can do that again

    There's been several April Fool's Day storms- I think you're referring to 1997 which was a shutout for the airports. I believe the most recent accumulating April Fool's Day event was 1964. The biggest one by far was 1924 though. I'm really into late season anomalous snows- there's some more posted about them in the snowfall contest thread.

    Grading Winter 2018-2019

    Some recent weenie research I did made me realize how utter crap the 90's were ('94 and '96 being outliers). At BWI, there was not a single 6"+ storm from January 1988 to March 1993 (which I believe is the longest stretch on record). There was also not a single 6"+ storm from February 1996 to January 2000 (which may be the 3rd longest stretch on record). Honestly the 2010's have been the best decade for snow that I've personally seen (11/12 and 12/13 being outliers). Four climo+ winters IMBY in a decade? That ain't happening again in my lifetime.

    Grading Winter 2018-2019

    I remember several years ago I did a poll asking if people preferred many nickel-and-dime events vs one HECS and nothing else. At the time, the consensus was nickel-and-dime was better- wonder how everyone thinks about that now? (I’ve always been in the HECS or bust camp)

    Grading Winter 2018-2019

    C+ Grade could potentially be upped with a late season storm. Without Jan. 12-14 it probably would have been a D- though.

    I have never been officially reaped. On the ledge many times, but not dead. I am in this until April. Me and @Jebman -we’re getting an April MECS!

    Where did you find maps for these events? I’d like to see those. And yes, I do intend on winning with a perfect score, thank you very much

    ...I suppose this is one way for Stormpc to win the tiebreaker

    Mid-Atlantic winter 2018-19 snowfall contest

    I’m surprised it was only a Trace too- I work in Suitland which is east of DCA and it looked like about 0.5-0.75” on the ground. But it’s DCA, so...

    Mid-Atlantic winter 2018-19 snowfall contest

    I’m not sure what you mean- right now, any amount at DCA (at least up to 0.4”) would give you an outright lead. Stormpc would overtake you with any amount at RIC though. I was curious about two things if you don’t mind me asking: what does your screen name mean, and didn’t you use to live in DC? It says now you live in NC? I think Stormpc said in another thread that he was moving to NC- living there may be crucial to winning these contests! Lol
