I was kind of hoping CLE would break into the top ten least snowiest. Hard to say but CLE will probably finish in the 35" range I'd imagine. Here's a look at the past few years snowfall at CLE - 

2017/2018 - 53.1"

2016/2017 - 37.3"

2015/2016 - 32.8"

2014/2015  - 67.1" (almost normal)

2013/2014 - 86.1" (the last time CLE was above normal)

Obviously we've had much more snow out here in the snowbelt... but 5 straight seasons of below normal snowfall at CLE is a bad stretch. 

Yikes I don't think I realized how little snowfall the airport has had the past several years.  Definitely points to how little synoptic snowfalls the area has had lately.

Could it be climatology balancing out the snowy 2000s?

What a great decade that was. CLE's average snowfall was 77". Time for regression I guess. How much snow have you had in Chesterland this season?

Forgot how nice 40s and sun feels!  Tomorrow and Thurs should be really nice until some rain.   I'm ready for an early spring.

It has been really nice. Definitely ready for Spring as well. Not much to see in the long range so hopefully we'll coast into Spring.

Hey! Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. Taking a guess, id say Chesterland has had about 55” (give or take a few inches) this year. How about Russell?

I'm around 50 inches in South Russell. About 50% of average.

Yep, 52.5 is my unofficial tally.  Downright ugly.

For any of you who fish for Steelhead in the Rocky River I'm coming up with my B-I-Law next weekend the 22nd-24th to try it again. I didn't catch any last November, but didn't know what I was doing then, maybe better luck this time!

Good luck with the Steelhead fishing. You might want to try the Chagrin or Grand rivers as well.

Getting a pretty good burst of snow.  From webcams looks very elevation dependant mainly 271 east, then rain elsewhere.   Grass is about covered in Chardon.

Its dumping in Chagrin. Huge flakes. Everything is covered already... winter wonderland scenery.

Nam trying to give us several inches Saturday night.  If it's going to be cold on Sunday, might as well snow.

Looks like a sneaky few inches of snow in the higher elevations tonight.  Will be curious to see if any of you get a decent accumulation!  Weird system with an expected brief burst of heavy snow behind the cold front...and then a bit of lake effect into Sunday.

Finally a stretch of nice dry days. Was out in the yard yesterday and surprised how not overly soaked the yard was.  The past few springs seem to have been very wet.

Anyone else feel the earthquake today?  Very distinct, but brief shake in Chardon. https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us70003xny/executive  

Yeah. I felt it here in Chagrin. Pretty cool. It happened pretty close to the salt mines under the lake... couldn't imagine being in a mine under the lake when that happened.

EF-1 Tornado confirmed in SE Cuyahoga county yesterday. Not sure what the parameters looked like but it was rainy and cloudy prior to the storm. Must have formed along the front.

CLE finished June -0.2 with 8.08" of precip... good enough for the 4th wettest June. The last week of the month definitely felt like summer compared to the rest of the month. The ground had dried out in sunny areas. The shady areas are still really wet. Good potential for an MCS to roll through tomorrow night.

Ya it's been a nice switch to summer like temps.  I was quite surprised to find the back area of my yard still quite wet.

CLE has only had.13" of rain so far in July. Quite a change from June. Much more rain has fallen around the area (1.5" imby so far) -- CLE has been lake breezed quite a bit this month with most of the rain falling south of the airport.

Warm July at CLE with +3.7 departure. July was dry as well with below average precip. The dryness on the west side is a little deceiving as most locations across the area had well above normal precip. Close to 6" of precip IMBY for the month.

The rain/t'storm forecast was a bust last night across the area. Pretty amazing how dry it has become considering we had above average precip over the Summer. Most of the rain that has fallen the past couple of weeks has been from Ashtabula county into Western PA. The "maple tar spot" has been really bad this year with a lot of leaves already coming down. Doesn't look like its going to be a good year for Fall color at least locally.

Now that October is here, I'm starting to get the itch for winter.  Some leaves are starting to fall and temps finally look to cool off later in the week.  September was way too hot.  Hopefully it's an active lake effect year.  Just took a look back at last year's paltry total of 57.5".  What a miserable winter it was.
