Bastardi believes that the winters of 1969-70 and 1976-77 are analogs for this winter

I put together a bunch of locations snowfall stats from those 2 winters. Enjoy.


The shaded boxes are showing how much below or above normal normal they were those yrs.


Looks like Central Ohio had some good snows both those years.


State College had 90 inches of snow (+44.3" above normal) in 1969-70 season. Chicago had 77" (+40.7" above). Caribou Maine was 20" below normal.


Check out Buffalo for 1976-77 season. WOW. 200" of snow!

The way things are going this winter could be worse than either of those winters.

70.7" of snow in Pittsburgh would correlate to a mammoth season for me probably in the 85"-95" range

I was just 4 years old in January 1977. Coldest month on record for Chicago, so I hope this analog pans out

To be fair, last winter *should* have been snowy in Missouri. My location had something like 11 (or possibly more) measurable snow events. They were just all pitifully small, because literally every precipitation event this year has suddenly fallen apart just before reaching this area.
