What David said. And why is that people can't go read some climate information--available in lots of place on-line ( Weatherbase and Western U.S. Climate Historical Summaries , for example)--to see what is considered statistically normal? Instead, they'll read what people on an internet forum pontificate about it--many of them with little long-term history of a local climate upon which to base their observations.

Every location has it's own normal. Here in Grand Junction on the western slope, The normal mean temperature for the monh of December is 28.19 degrees. In December '09 the mean temperature for the mont of December was 17.85, almost 10 and a half degrees below normal. On the hot end of the spectrum, the normal mean temperature for the month of July is 76.74. In July of '07, the July mean was 81.66, almost 5 degrees above normal. The point is....fluctuations from normal is totally normal.

Yes. If it has an apostrophe it means "it is."

Uh, "mean" and "average" ARE the same. Oh, and I am a trained statistician, among other things.

Be glad you're not in the San Juan Mountains this week, they're due for 3-4 FEET of snow.

So far, November has been quite snowy in the ski areas. They're loving it.

Here's a report on the snowpack so far. Above average up north, below average in the SW part of COLO, though with 3-4 feet coming in soon, that may get the numbers back on track.
