Link: NOAA: Fourth Warmest Winter on Record - weather.com

Some interesting images from the website:



Cities with a top 10 warmest winter (not a complete list) -

Baltimore: 7th warmest Green Bay: 2nd warmest New York City: 2nd warmest Boston: 2nd warmest Hartford: 2nd warmest Providence: 2nd warmest Chicago: 9th warmest Kansas City: 7th warmest St. Louis: 6th warmest Cleveland: 7th warmest Milwaukee: 5th warmest Washington, D.C.: 3rd warmest Fargo: warmest on record Minneapolis: 4th warmest


Not surprising, this winter has been almost non-existent.

Glad I live in Colorado. I enjoyed this winter, but last winter wasn't bad either, though it was less snow. I'm hoping for a non-existent summer

The States as a whole get so little wintry weather in an average winter anyway, for that place to have such a warmer-than-normal winter makes for truly pathetic conditions. It has been horrible there since November, and I'm sure tens of millions of people will agree with me , not that this point has any relevancy to the discussion at all.

This non-winter will be very memorable. The icing on the cake would be a record breaking March heatwave.

Never thought I'd agree with you. Brown grass and dead plants get very dull, I was starting to miss the lack of snow. Our short winter spell was a treat. I wish we didn't have a long period of not real winter and not real spring; warm days but night cold enough for frost preventing any plant growth, creating a very frustrating 1.5 months or so.

While I know your standards for winter are higher than mine, the US has more of a chance of getting wintry weather better than most temperate latitude places in the world.

Winter continues in my part of the world (western Oregon). We are running about 6 degrees (3.5) below average for the begining of the month. Although we are only 8 days into it, the next two weeks call for much below average temperatures and shots of rain

The upside is we already have had more sunshine than the entirety of March last year plus the first week or so of April and will get one more partially sunny day tomorrow. The rain begins on Saturday and will last through the next week.

What a lucky guess! Indeed 2012 did have a very warm March!

When I first saw this I was like "Huh? Last winter wasn't that warm", but then I saw the date .

He did have good luck, didn't he? We didn't know this at the time, but the warm and snowless March 2012 was followed by an equally cold and snowy March 2013 - go figure . I found it quite interesting at the time that 2011-12 seemed to be a top 10 or top 5 warmest across a huge area, but the area where it was the warmest on record was very small. Given the widespread warmth I'd expect to see more all-time records (like March 2012), but I suppose it happens.
