I don't want a repeat of last winter's crap fest. Give me something colder than average, and a February that's actually winter.

Lovely. After a non-existent winter last year it looks like this year will be similar. Uggh.

I checked (using NY Central Park data) and it's pretty obvious it is temperature, most significantly J-M temperatures. When it is cooling, snow totals go up. When it is warming, snow totals go down (trend). Precipitation shows no trend.

This is true for any period you can use. Warming trends show less snow, cooling trends show more snow. Many other stations (but not all) show the same thing. Of course other quality stations in other states show the exact same thing. Temperature goes down, snow fall goes up.

Be happy that there is even a chance for winter in the US South, because it is really a region that should be warm year-round in the first place.

I'm hoping for a winter like Syracuse had in 1993 with 192 inches of snow.

I would like Winter to start late October-early November and go through late March-early April.

Whether it SHOULD BE warm year-round or not, it hasn't always been. Yes, we have had the occasional really warm winter, but over the past few years it's gotten progressively worse.

All I'm saying is that cold-lovers in the SE US are quite spoiled compared to those similar latitudes most other locations on Earth. Therefore, there should be more appreciation for the fact that it is even able to get cold (even if it becomes more and more fleeting).
