Folks, we've had over 100" of snow this season and I'm just wondering? How do you think Spring will be? Do you think we'll have a dry summer? Just wondering. I'm guessing there's going to be a huge amount of flooding from the snow melting.

The colder than average winter for the Upper Midwest is related to a couple of different factors.
The Pacific Decadal Oscillation or PDO has entered a negative phase. This is related to flow pattern changes over the Pacific Ocean. The negative phase of the PDO could be associated with colder than normal tempertures and storminess during the winter over portions of North America.
The current La Nina is also having an impact by changing the jet stream position over areas of the Pacific and allowing arctic air to build in Canada and hit the Upper Midwest with increasing intensity.

For Spring I would expect a continuation of the active pattern for areas that have seen a lot of snow this winter, but I do see temperatures rebounding closer to climatological averages.

I'm hoping for an early spring, but that is being overly optimistic. Somehow I have the feeling that it will be a very wet spring and late to arrive. As much as I don't mind winter I don't feel like shoveling anymore.

I am not a climatologist but did take some meteorology and climatology classes in College. I would have liked to have been a meteorologist but I am terrible at math. The requirement at the time was 4 semesters of Calculus that included Differential Equations

There is a 30 day waiting period for flood insurance policies to take effect. 100" of snow I would be be seriously considering one .

We have only had about 25" her in the Twin Cities.
