WINTER 2019/2020 BANTER

Recommended Posts

I expect a warmer to much warmer than normal March (probably 3°-4° above normal overall) with below to much below normal snowfall. I don't think March will quite reach the extremes seen in such cases as 1945 or 2012. In terms of probabilities, my guess is that 2012-type warmth would have about a one-in-four chance this March (exceptionally high relative to climatology, but still not the most likely outcome).

was March 1990 warmer than 2012?  I just remember that very warm streak in the middle of the month.

and March 1998 was warm too, but more towards the end of the month.

Not in NYC. March 1990 had a mean temperature of 45.1°. March 2012 had a mean temperature of 50.9° (just below the 51.1° record from 1945).

Final Feb and winter stats for my station...Feb mean temp of 38.3° is 7th warmest on record ( 43 years ). Snowfall of a Trace, ties with 1998.  Precip was normal with 3.06".... Met winter was 5th warmest with a measly 6.8" of snow. Precip  was above normal at 13.20" due to a record wet Dec.

For those keeping track of the coronavirus, here's a link to a dashboard created by Johns Hopkins University's Center for Systems Science and Engineering:

http://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

It’s spreading fast. That link you gave us I think has a really fast updated system. I use this link also for the coronavirus

The extremely cold winter continues in Alaska with much of central and northern Alaska 10-40 below zero this morning.

It’s actually good for the environment up there as the prolonged cold will help with invasive species. We also rebuilt some sea ice this winter

For those who are interested, Coronavirus/COVID-19 Fact Sheets can be found here:

Coronavirus is underrated and Chinese government won’t even allow international journalist in. From the looks of it it’s far worse than flu and way more than 2 percent mortality rate. Also in China there have been rumors that people are dying on the streets just by walking. Sounds to me like the last book on the Bible!

I have a hard time believing that.

I guess it depends on how rainy Spring gets.

Still this string of well above normal weather has me concerned about the summer. We're putting up +5 or better readings like nothing. 

Don't see why that wouldn't continue.

When was the last time we had a truly hot summer? Feels like it's been quite sometime. I know "hot" is relative, but if I had to guess, I'd say 2014?

We really need next winter to be a big one. Start early, end late. The local ski areas have really struggled both in attendance and financially. Big mountains up north can weather the storm so to speak, but in CT and downstate NY, this has been a tough winter for them. Know some people in the business and it is really tough on them.

Summer of 2018 was above normal just about the whole summer with steam bath dew points that limited the daily highs.

I think of Summer 2018 and all that comes to mind is Rain, more rain and oh yeah.. Rain. 

I do recall very warm and dry in July, however. But it finished very wet and carried right into November.

I've gone to Mohawk (CT) twice this year and it's actually been decent with all the snowmaking and no crowds at all....  But when there's no snow down here, people just don't go.

Almost time to grade this disaster winter. Personally it was my least favorite of all time. As some of you know snow for me is more then something I’m passionate about but has major financial implications. There are many out there hurting from two (coastal) duds in a row. Even the 80s as bad as they were had some snow.

I say nothing wrong with tracking until April ...its a hobby ..part of the hobby is the chase unfortunately sometimes the chase yields zero results..this winter it has found every possible way NOT to snow  ..even a broken. Clock is right twice a day ..lets hope for one showfall before april 10 ..after that date im ready to move past tracking winter type events
