Sneaky 1 to 3 possible tomorrow night 

Got 3.5, but little or nothing on pavement. Meh. An exciting event in early December. Just an annoyance at this point, especially with all that's more serious going on.

There appears to be a pretty awful (cold) pattern settling in when we flip to April.  Let's hope it is only several days and not half the month.

Models as a whole have kind of abandoned this idea today. Now looks like its only gonna last 5-7 days before switching back to a more severe wx favorable base state.

12z GFS is pretty impressive for that system next week, especially for this time of year.

There's actually decent agreement among most guidance for an event in the area for late week.

Why does April always have to be doo-doo? The last 3 days have been miserable. Locally in SON, there were only 2 warm Aprils last decade!!

This is the final post of this thread  in a winter that snowed on halloween and April 17. In between nothing but failure. Please put it to bed here, I beg you.

Chicago is now only ~1.5" away from normal snowfall on the season.

Took an unusual route to get there, with the early and late snowfalls.

On that note, 2019-20 is the first time on record that Chicago has had a 3" calendar day snowfall in October and April of the same snow season. 

If we lower the bar to a 1" calendar day snowfall in October and April of the same snow season, it is only the 3rd time.  October 1906/April 1907 and October 1925/April 1926 are the other two.

Crazy how despite all odds, both Detroit and Toronto finished above average this winter. 

How did Jan and Feb fare? YYZ recorded 21" in Feb. Ended up being the 9th snowiest Feb on record, if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, isnt that something lol. The type of Winter lover I am, this was certainly not my Winter of choice, but I also disagree when people act like the snowfall total makes the Winter look better than it was or something along those lines. It is what it is.  That's why there's so many other facets to the weather than just how much snow fell. The bottom line was, this was for all intents and purposes and average snow season, technically a drop above average.  The number of snowcover days of 1"+ averages 50, but this year DTW saw 41 days, so that is moreso indicative of the mild Winter.

 

DTW snowfall this season:

Oct- T (-0.1)

Nov- 9.5" (+8.0)

Dec- 2.7" (-7.0)

Jan- 9.7" (-2.8)

Feb- 14.7" (+4.5)

Mar- 1.7" (-5.2)

Apr- 4.9" (+3.2)

May- ?:lol:
