DEFINE YOUR DEFINITION OF WINTER

Recommended Posts

DEFINE YOUR WINTER EXPECTATIONS

As I read through many of the differences and arguments in these threads, it seems there are as many definitions of winter as there are people posting. While I prefer cold and snowy, you can’t expect much more than “normal”.  Please enter your definition of winter in the format below:

 

Type:  Romanticist  (Note:  Type should reflect if you are a “snow hater”, “snow lover”,  “realist”, “rationalist”, “pessimist”, etc.)

Temperature:  Near normal – enough for the local ponds to freeze for at least four weeks

Snow:  Normal, with conditions that don’t allow every snowfall to melt within 2-3 days; sustained

snow cover.

Duration:  Mid December through mid March

Comments:  If winter conditions have not materialized (cold, snow) by mid January, and most long range models don’t see any cold air in place for the next 2-3 weeks, I usually write off winter.  Yes, we could still receive a snowfall or two, and there “can” be an abrupt pattern change, but without winter conditions by mid February, the “Romanticist’s” winter never really was.
