You are not mixed up. I've had friends skiing in July below 3500 ft, but no this year (barring a Spring miracle). It was all gone in February.

So far this month Oymyakon has had average highs in the -30s C (which is manageable) and lows in the -50s C (which is excruciating, presumably), for a pretty big diurnal range.

-50s C is not at all common in March there (it was 6C away from a monthly record this morning), so this is pretty extraordinary.

As of this morning CT Coast(BDR) still had 14" of snow on ground. The beaches here having a foot plus of snow in March for this long is not something anyone alive today seen.

Longest streak with 10"+ snow continues. Latest on longest & record.

2nd longest for having 11"+. Will we make it to Saturday to break that record? I seriously dought it.

Another? Here, tell your grandkids. lol

Number of Days Bridgeport had 11" or more of snow on the ground in a month.

Feb 2015 had 21 days which was the most on record.
March this year is the most with 10 including today
2nd most for a season.

So in the last 67 yrs on record, there's never been this much snow sitting there for so many days in February and in March.

Only 1 other year did in March in 1967 but it was for 1 day.


They had 12" this morning so add a day into March and the season. Wow!



We have never seen snow cover into March like this in Southern CT.

57.3 inches on the season here in coastal Westchester. Most of my measurements have been off driveway or glass table in back, so this is probably slightly low. Our snow cover has been here since Jan 24th. I believe at one point we had 2+ feet of snow a few days ago, but have easily lost close to a foot of that. The snowpack temperatures in coastal CT are still pretty cold, but anything inland or over to the far west LI sound is going to melt very fast. With the rain tonight and 56 degrees tomorrow, I am not seeing snow going to far into the future. Kind of a random fact, but before the winter really started on Jan 24, we had nearly three times more snow than central park, despite being quite close to it. As the winter got extremely cold the temperature was below freezing with or without the UHI, so we balanced out a bit.

This is weather equivalent of the world forum fact thread right?

Central Park snow depth records date to the incidentally powerhouse cold January 1912, but three of the top-5 snow cover streaks there have occurred since 2010 (#3 began on 27 Dec 2010). R output doesn't include this year's run, which began on 24 Jan, for a length of 48 days so far. No way the #3 title from four years ago is being matched, given this weekend's rain-storm.

Nice stats! Yup.. Say goodbye to it tomorrow.. Here's an update....


Longest snowcover (1"+) for Newark, NJ & Islip, NY. (They ended it, have 0 now)

Only 3yrs were longer in NYC. Look at #3 and #5 like Qilin34 pointed out. (They had 4" yesterday)

2nd longest for Bridgeport and 4 yrs ago was the longest. (They still had 7" yesterday)

Once again a perspective for the CT coast area (Bridgeport) Nobody younger than 63yrs old experienced a long duration snow cover like this and in 2011.

11 of last 17 months have been below normal at the CT coast(BDR) ..... but how can we forget 20 straight months above normal from March 2011 to October 2012.

The last time we had a month being warmer than +4.2 degrees above normal was March 2012
