Absolutely roaring out there. Had a bunch of 35-40+ gusts . Running into those headwinds was not fun. Temp dropped 6 degrees in the CAA and what was wet pavement had iced up even above 32.

Yea ripping here. Evaporative cooling is a cool phenomenon.  Did you know the twins family Maxon visited. I saw he tweeted about you.

They were talking on news this AM about how February has been below normal for temps.  We in the minority because TAN is at +1.1F.

Jan +4.0

Dec  +3.1

Likewise we’ll be going on a month with snow here which hasn’t happened in awhile. So it made Feb all that nicer.  To be honest, I secretly enjoyed 18-19. It wasn’t a pack winter, but it seemed like each storm we got sort of exceeded my expectations. If that makes any sense. It started with the November snow and ended with the March bomb. 

Well,. sort of, but when my expected 1" event drops 2" it doesn't move the needle much.  For an active February with many chances, having no double-digit storms and only one bigger than 3" is a downer, especially when I see several NNJ sites with more snow this month than I've had all season.

Yesterday's +16 moved our average back into AN range, will probably finish avg to +1.

OCT    -1.5
NOV   +2.0
DEC    +4.3
JAN    +5.6 
FEB     +0.6  thru yesterday
Autumns with BN Oct and AN Nov almost always mean bad news for the coming winter here.  Same for the much longer POR at Farmington.

Still about a 10-11" pack up here. The driveway is a glacier an inch thick too. Hopefully this weekend we can start seeing some dirt again.

Assuming March doesn't produce anything of substance, this winter gets a D-. Way below avg sn, AN temps, no arctic outbreaks, never had a morning below 0, Jan snooze fest, porked in Feb for sn, grinch stole xmas again. The only two things I can say were decent was last ~3wks, we had good sn retention due to avg temps and dec's snow leading up to the grinch. as others have said, if it weren't for the grinch, we would have coasted through much of Jan with a decent pack otg. Pretty sad when dec produced the most amount of sn.

Yeah, that day was tossed high and far.  I recall that one when I saw it.  That's why I posted the HPRCC map for corroboration of area being above normal.

I can't go lower than a C-....I'm solidly below normal snowfall, but its not bad enough to be memorable....just about what I thought going in.

I really enjoyed the Feb 1 event, and even the 12/17 event was decent, despite being screwed. Extended time with deep pack in Feb.....C- at the moment.

I would like to grab 1.5" more on the season, which should be doable.

I haven't looked, but hopefully I can get a bit Saturday.

Looks warmer than the last system. I don't think they'll be much except maybe for Dave on N and W.

Cool. Oh, well....I find it hard to believe that I won't be able to sneak an inch or two in March, at some point.

I'm going to fall short of 30" in Feb, but I know a lot of the area probably hit it.

Buddy of mine sent me this pic in Jackman, Mom didn't care much as she was keeping an eye on her 2 kittens.

Havent followed weather with nothing interesting on the radar.  Used to wind, but last night came as a mild shock.  I woke from my edible induced sleep hearing whipping winds and my first thought was that a rogue planet  had entered our solar system and the gravitational pull was enough to accelerate wind speeds
