Well maybe I will give it a C+, it was a good stretch of below normal temperatures.

B+ for temps
C for total snowfall. 8" on the winter so far but the problem each time we got several inches half of it would melt for 24hrs before we could freeze for a day or two. Very frustrating. Plus I am used to easy double digit snow totals during a good winter here, it was quite pathetic how my area got missed as areas to my north, south, east, and even west got much more.

How much do you think most of the area got?

 

Regardless of exact totals, 2016-17, 2013-14, and 2008-09 were all better winters for the Salem area than anything else since 1992-93. Real bad stretch from 1993-2007.


Cool anomalies soothe the soul.

This would easily be an A+ for Klamath Falls.

 

This winter has surprised locals who have been here for decades.

We saw our most 1 day snow since Jan 1993, and one of the 5 coldest temperatures ever at KLMT all within the first week of January 2017.

Another strong point was diversity. This season kicked off right after an incredibly warm November. After my huge January storm and arctic temps, the depth of 21.00" I had built up quickly went down to a mere handful of inches after a few rainy days. February then goes to be another warmer than normal month while still providing lots of snow.

 

Another thing too I noticed is that I am 4 consecutive months over average snowfall in a row. It has been more than a decade since that last happened.

 

Lastly... WIND! It was extremely windy, not just this winter alone but even since October, Klamath Basin has been battered by numerous wind events. For now lately it has sort of quieted down but it seemed like for a while, there was never going to be an end to it.

I'm with you on the high winds. February was especially absurd here, with two seperate pressure surge events producing gusts in excess of 80mph across portions of the area. Even DCA, which sits in a bowl at sea level, reached 66mph.

A gust of 110mph was recorded at Wintergreen, VA, which is especially notable given this region hasn't seen 100+mph winds during the cold season since 2011.

Portions of roofs ripped off homes and buildings, cars literally blown out of their parking spots, branches blown through windows, power poles snapped, etc. Very chaotic, to say the least. 🌪

I'll rate it A-

 

The cons are mostly minor things though but a real Arctic blast with single digit temps would have been excellent.

 

Pros:

-Hardly any foggy days

-Lots of sun

-Some good heavy rain events but not endless stretches

-Lots of snow. I stopped counting... 

-Sustained cold which is the most surprising thing to me

 

Cons:

-No blizzards

-No extremely heavy snowfall

-Lots of non-accumulating snowfall

-Snow that fell was pretty wet most of the time

-No extreme cold or even temperatures below 15-20F

Couple detailed things I neglected to mention. While it was snowing Jan 3rd/4th, it started in the single digits in temps and continued in the teens. Altogether was a completely different snow than I ever remember here. The par for the course would be 28-32 degree snow, and almost no wind. I did legitimately also get a couple real blizzards here. (one of them surprisingly occurred in this month so far in March!!).

 

I may not be a big fan of winter but there were definitely things that I consider memorable this season. 

 

Now, may there be pineapples before the warm season kicks in.  :P

Winter did more than it's part this time around. 

 

If March goes and pulls off a 2012.. I'll add another "+" to my A+ rank.

I'd give it an A in Bend so far. Our winter is winding down, but I'll wait out March before a complete breakdown.

70" of snow with a max depth of 31". 75 or so consecutive days of snowcover, 92 consecutive now with partial snowcover in my yard. December and January were amazing, but we were just on the warm side in February compared to places up north. Had February been a bit colder and with about 5-10 more inches it would have been an A+.

I'm upgrading my winter to an A-, since it's basically almost set in stone that we will break 5 feet of snow. If it was a tad warmer during January and December and a little colder in February(for consistent snow cover and reaching 2'+ on the ground) this would be an A winter.

I've been waffling between a B+ and an A-, but I'm keeping it at a B+ for now. If I were a total stat freak, I'd easily give it an A- or maybe even an A, but these days I'm more interested in extreme events. Stuff like mean temperatures or the number of days with snow or sub-freezing highs (although important factors) don't impress me quite as much, but it's been a very good winter by those measures.

 

I've had at least 30 days with snow in the air, and 26 of those with measurable snow (defined as .1" or more). However, the majority of those days featured very wet, slushy snow that often changed over to rain. The number of days with quality snow was far lower (probably fewer than 10).

 

The lack of any top tier arctic air masses is the main reason I'm sticking with a B+. I still managed 21 days with sub-freezing highs, but many of those were just barely below freezing.

Really interesting how you had 30 snow days and 26 of them stuck but most of those were wet. I would guess I had about ~25 snow days, 5 didn't stick, 5 were wet(3 of them in March), 15 were dry to very dry.

Upping my grade to a D, though I'm probably being generous..

Recent storm was interesting simply due to the incredible amount of sleet it dropped here within such a short timeframe, and the incredible snow totals in NY/New England, up to 58". We ended up with a 5" glacier than you could walk/jump on without falling through, and 40-60mph winds to go along with it.

Also, once again we've observed historic cold in March. After numerous all-time late-season cold records were broken in March of 2014, we've now broken those 2014 records, and some additional records dating back to the early/mid 1800s, just after the Dalton minimum.

Also, it's interesting to note that over the last 100+ years, the climate system continues to maintain the boreal NH winter circulation later into the spring, by an average of ~ 2 weeks now versus the mid/late 1800s. This has reduced the aggregate poleward transfer of heat and mass, relative to that of momentum, and has slightly delayed the start of the aggregate NH melt season above 75N, by ~ 10 days on average, contrary to popular belief.

I would give the winter a final overall ranking of A-. For cold and snow it was probably more in the B+ range, but the long duration of snow cover and coveted clear snow covered/sub-freezing days pushed it into A- range for me. Definitely the most complete winter of the 6 I have been up here. 2011-12 had the snow, 2013-14 had intense cold, but this one had both. Snowiest event, that first weekend of March, coldest day 24/13 on January on January 5th.

A broad-brush that doesn't include localized minimums, no doubt. For example, isolated below freezing temps were observed in metro LA not indicated on the map.

 

Astronomical winter ended warm/ dry w/ above normal temps and only one day of rainfall during the first 20 days of March.

C- , only saw 4 inches total all winter everything went south or east of me.

Same amount Aumsville/Stayton area got.  I think that's a pretty good score.  I might be generous and give it a B- because of the fact nearby hills kept snow cover for so long meaning it wasn't very far to drive to actually see decent accumulations.

I think my final call will be a B-. December and January were great with frequent heavy snowstorms and below normal temperatures. That section of winter would be a solid A. However, nov as well as both feb and march were blowtorchs and so the winter ended above normal. We haven't had any significant snow since March 5th, which is quite unusual, and both Feb and March were way below normal snow wise. 

 

We also had no significant east winds storms, although we did finally have a very modest one the other day. There were no major lake effect snow events either. Some pluses include the coldest temperature since 1996 I believe, and the wettest March day in history (6th all-time). I think to me that adds up to a B-.

Tonight might move this up to an A. Not sure what criteria to use. If we get 7"+ definitely going there snowiest day an April on record would definitely put us there. I think some other scenarios should qualify this winter too, maybe it depends on how I feel after I see snow(if any).

I give it a B- which I would've given it a B+ if we had more then 3 inches of snow but this winter had too many busts and  "just 10 days away" schemes.  Otherwise we have had long stretches of below 45F degree weather but had more 50F days then Portland or Seattle did.

C- so far here.


And with a terrible last couple months, solid F. Literally my least favorite winter I've seen here.

Cool anomalies soothe the soul.
