Exciting.

http://www.weather.com/storms/winter...No_11_20150903

"A dusting of snow covered parts of the ground at the top of Summit House (elevation 6,873 feet) at Crystal Mountain in Washington state. About 486 inches of snow falls in an average year here, according to the Crystal Mountain website. Less than half of that total fell last season (234 inches), however"



Here's Why. Jet Doing the Dip, Cold air compressing towards the Surface



And don't forget the rare July snows in California, Montana & Wyoming.

Forget the Spring Tulips, it's time for something else to start sprouting now.

Check this out... Time to debunk? lol
Cool summary though!

Where September snows average 0.1" from The Weather Channel.

#1... Most of these locations are after Mid September anyway.

#2. Great Falls, Montana. Only 11 times in last 123 years saw snow first half of September. Happens, but not common.

#3. Caribou??? ONLY ONCE in their history of records they got snow in September (9/29/91) yet this map makes it seem like its normal to see. LOL They got 2.5" that day.

So basically 2.5 inches / 30yrs (1981-2010) = 0.1"/yr. That's why the normal shows up as 0.1" for September in Caribou. But IT IS RARE to see September snow in last 76 yrs.
