Cobalt Posted January 22 Share Posted January 22 This certainly hasn't helped our prospects of snow recently. While the 97-02 snow drought didn't feature much of any notable cold in the CONUS during February, the recent 17-22 stretch has, it's just consistently been dumping into the Central and Western US, and the persistent SER has made it rather difficult to see any sustained cold in the East. This has turned what was a snowy month (avg 5.0") into just an average of 1.1" over the past 6 Februaries at DCA. January (4.9" avg during that interval), and even March (1.3" avg) have presented substantially more snow threats during this period by a good margin. Whether something temporary, exacerbated by persistent Nina conditions, or a product of the bigger picture, it isn't good, and has contributed to our futility since the 2015-16 winter. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
