I always knew it can happen but never really looked into it or checked back.

Mason City, IA 5th Warmest November but 1 of the snowiest as well. 7th as of today and more coming tomorrow so could be Top 5 snowiest Novembers.

Chicago 10th warmest and 4th snowiest Novembers.

Cool.. On that note.. something I found yesterday..

Satellite Fog and Low Cloud Images (NOAA/NESDIS)

Cloud Base map
Clouds are at 2100 feet over Jacksonville. Clear for much of south.



Fog map

Visibility 10 miles almost everywhere. Should be fun to see this map in the mornings.

Yellow = Stratiform clouds or mid-level clouds. Brighter yellow shows thicker clouds.
Medium gray - Cloud-free land or water
Blue or black - Cirrus clouds at high altitudes (may obscure some low clouds). Dark blue shows thicker cirrus.

The hottest day in Inuvik, Canada this year was 81 F / 27 C on May 18th. Average that day is 42 / 24 F (6 / -4 C). In 2010 it was May 28 at 84 F / 29 C but the ten days make a big difference; by May 28 averages are 51 / 33 F (11 / 1 C).

Also, on June 25, 1964, Inuvik had snow, some moderate, all day and temps of 33 / 30 F (1 / -1 C) against averages of 67 / 47 F (19 / 8 C). The statistical peak of summer is July 10, with averages of 67 / 49 F (19 / 9 C), therefore Inuvik had significant snow at, for all intents and purposes, the height of summer. As seen below, snowfalls even at the height of summer are not unheard of, but this was the only major height of summer snowfall in the period of record (1961-1966 and 1977-present). The "height of summer" is June 20 - July 31. Just goes to snow that snow can fall in the height of summer with trees. I would mention the Ushuaia snowfall this week, but it's not quite the "height of summer" there yet, it's still early summer there.

Snow in Inuvik in June is not uncommon but typically ends during the first 10 days of June. Most of these falls in June are overnight falls, June 18, 2003 being a good example. It snowed overnight, reaching 31 F / -1 C, but snow ended in early morning and temperatures hit 54 F / 12 C that afternoon.

There have been other height of summer (June 20 - July 31) snowfalls. Most of these had temperatures remaining above freezing and hence likely little accumulation; most were also only recorded as "light snow". Some may have actually been rain/snow mix.
2002 had snowfalls on June 29 and July 2 with temperatures that stayed above freezing (low 33 F / 1 C on June 29 and 35 F / 2 C on July 2). Both seemed to be rain/snow mix events. July 6-7, 2001 had some snow as well with an overnight snowfall on July 7.
1996 had a short snowfall on July 9. Temperature was 36 F / 2 C.
Overnight snowfall was recorded on June 25-26, 1995, temperature was 36 F / 2 C.
June 22, 1994 had snow for most of the day with temperatures between 34-38 F / 1-3 C.
July 10, 1991 had some morning snow with temperatures around 37 F / 3 C.
July 19, 1984 had a minor snowfall with temperature of 36 F / 2 C.
June 22-23, 1983 had some snow. Temperatures during the snowfall were 34-36 F / 1-2 C.
June 22, 1981 had some morning snow. Temperature was 34 F / 1 C and rose to 52 F / 11 C for a high that day.
June 21, 1978 had some morning snow with temperature of 32-36 F / 0-2 C; high was 54 F / 12 C. Further snow fell on June 24 with temperatures around 34 F / 1 C at the time.
Other snowfalls included June 25 and July 26, 1966, July 2-3, 1964, and June 22, 1962.

We just had 4 days in a row of 10+ above normal with the max temp. Did not happen all year. Last time that happened was Dec 24-28 last year. We had 3 in a row in May and September, not 4

Last time Bridgeport had a max temp of 10+ above normal for 6 days in a row was March 18-23, 2012. 59 tomm, 60s Tuesday looks like it will happen again.

So we have not experienced this many days in a row this much above normal since Spring 2012!

Baltimore, MD... only ONCE in 123 yrs they had 0 ZERO snow for Oct-Nov & Dec.


That year ended up with just 2.3"! This year looks like will be the 2nd time with ZERO snow heading into January.


Still 12 days left. #Miracle?


Sorted by December's least snowiest.

Tornadic conditions are not uncommon in the Deep South around Christmas as shown by this map.

For the first time ever, Central Park made it to Christmas without a low below 32.

Also, Central Park is currently 7 degrees warmer than the warmest December on record. This anomaly will likely be reduced in the coming days, but it's still pretty impressive.
