I thought 2018 exceeded 2003 in snowfall in April?  Also what date in April in 1950 did we get those 2 inches of snow?  Thanks!

I believe 1983 also had 1-2 inches of snow in April, on the 19th-- was that our latest measurable snowfall?

Note that April 2006 had 1-2 inches of snow which was recorded as 0.1 at NYC but 1.0 at JFK

Cool and rainy pattern on the EPS through March 11th with lingering blocking and a fast La Niña Pacific flow. Storm systems will be racing across the country every few days. Then a warm up with more of SE Ridge in mid-March.

 

April 4-11

Pretty good agreement among all ensembles now that the pattern breaks come mid-month. It may get quite warm mid-April and beyond with that SE ridge flex. I have a feeling we are in for some early season heat come May

The megadrought continues in the West.

 

 

 

Frightening preview of things to come.

some interesting wind obs last night on buoy 44025 gusting to 52 knots. I wonder what caused this wind burst. It was way out ahead of the front.

It was with the special marine warning. Enough MUCAPE above the inversion. So the stronger winds were able to mix down with the very heavy downpours.

The potential for some needed rainfall in early April as the southern and western parts of the area have been dry recently.
