Snow has never been recorded in July or August. Better do some more research.

I remember snow flurries in July, 1974 in Denver; I was there. Perhaps you had better do actual research.

Surprisingly mild winters?

The southern half of Ohio has this as well as the southeastern quarter of Pennsylvania, but the northern halves of those states on the other hand....

Winters in Baltimore are too cold also. NYC, Philly, Baltimore, DC are just about the same when it comes to how cold they get. These cities rarely have more than a 4 or 5 degree difference between them, if that.

Current temps:
NYC- 39
Philly- 37
Baltimore- 36
DC-36

I'd have to disagree there. The northern halves of these states are harsh...the southern halves aren't harsh, but they aren't great either. I'd hardly call them mild for where they are located. Cincinnati averages over 20 inches of snow a year. That's not exactly mild.

St. Louis barely ever gets snow, whereas everyone else in the midwest is buried in it.

I beg to differ. Yes, much of the Midwest does get buried in snow, but a significant amount, especially south of the latitude of the Great Lakes, does not. To say St. Louis barely ever gets it is extremely wrong. Every winter St. Louis gets at least 5 or 6 good snowfalls. St. Louis has comparable snowfall to other places in the Lower Midwest like Indy, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Kansas City. It's historic average is 22.5 inches a year. Last year we got 36 inches of snow. A couple of winters before that we got 30 inches...this is generally the pattern. Winters are not always bad, but rarely are they tolerable unless you come from the Upper Midwest. It is only starting at Iowa, Nebraska, Northern Illinois, Northern Indiana, and Northern Ohio where the winters you describe happen. This winter is truly abnormal. Nobody is getting snow...Chicago has had a much milder winter this year than St. Louis ever gets. St. Louis is well-equipped to deal with snow. Even 6 inches is not enough to shut this city down completely.

The Upper South sees slightly lower snowfalls, but still almost always gets some snow. A place that barely ever gets snow is starting in most places in the mid-south (Memphis, Nashville), and going further south. These cities are ill-equipped to deal with snow, and completely shut down, often for multiple days, when something even like 3 inches falls.

There is a considerable amount of snowfall, but it doesn't stick that often.
