So is it abnormal for the ADKS of NY in March? I'm pretty sure it is at 5000 feet and Im pretty sure 5 feet of snow is nothing as well. Its good to know there some snow above 3000 feet.
No, it's not but the post I responded to was on Washington State. Snow in the Cascades is at a different level than eastern peaks and it lasts later in the season. I assume most of the Adirondacks have had snow the whole winter even maybe at low elevations. Here are New Hampshire mountains:
Anywhere from 14-49" inches depending on elevation and site topography. Mt. Washington's high was -5°F today.
Right now, we have snow here at 200 feet. Looks and feels very wintry now, though not as much as a few days ago.
Looking back now I can finally say its a good thing we were above normal for over 5 months through Winter. I cant deal with above normal in Summer with 90s and 100s. Chances are we wont be now.
I dunno if mild warmer has any connection to cooler summer. My guess is they're unconnected; I looked at some data and it looked like any correlation disappears fast after a couple of months; but I need to recheck.
Should we start a U.S Spring/Summer thread? So we can post our OBSs. :-)
There's already a general spring thread started by Patricus Maximus. You could start a specific US one, but it'd be a bit of a duplicate.

Hmm. Thats what confused me. It looked like you responded to my post on the Adirondaks video forecast but then you mentioned Washington State. lol I scrolled up to see who left a post on Washington State and didnt see any. Maybe I missed it. But my post was for the Adirondaks in NY.
I wish I had your wintry scene down here. Oh well. 8 more months till Winter.
