Wow! Season snowfall total so far.

More yellows have been painted on the map (1 foot+). It's only December 10th.

Wonder how much more snow will fall across the Lower 48 next 3 months




I see 4 things on that map...


1. Greensboro more snow than Fargo so far.
2. Multiple snowfall events past 2 months.
3. Majority of country seen snow already.
4. Ski resorts are loving it!

Seasonal averages have been exceeded all across where it snowed in the south... by a lot in some cases.

Kansas City's total to date is 8.3 inches. This has included:

Earliest accumulating snowfall on record, 0.2 inches on October 14 (previous record: 3.3 inches on October 17, 1898)
Several early November snowfalls (KC's average first snowfall is November 28) - 1.3 inches on November 8, dusting on November 9, 0.5 inches (at the official station, more in other places, 1.5 inches downtown) on November 12.
A November blizzard, 5.8 inches at the official station and more in other locations, November 25
Several "surprise" snowfalls on December mornings - surprise dustings on the 3rd, 4th, and 6th


All the more impressive considering the totals for the last three *entire seasons* -

2017-2018: 7.7 inches (1.9 of which were in April. It seems 2018 likes out-of-season snowfalls)
2016-2017: 4.9 inches (second-lowest ever, beaten only by 2011-2012's 3.9 inches)
2015-2016: 5.9 inches

A surprising amount of melt today, walking around where I am I would say grassy surfaces are covered by maybe an inch or less and it’s getting patchy. Tomorrow should end it in all places except snow piles and well shaded areas. The rain overnight is what really killed the pack then a little more rain today with temps around 35 once we transitioned out of the burst of snow.

And nothing big next 10 days. Next snowflake chance is Monday evening, then again Thursday. Moisture starved clippers.


Christmas storm maybe?
