Frost depth

"The blast of arctic air over the past two weeks drove frost deeper into the ground. Current frost depths range from 14 inches in St. Paul to 30 inches in Bloomer"

I think the max depth here was 30 inches.

The Great blizzard of 2016..one for the ages here. It dumped 3 feet here in one day, over 50” around the Blue Ridge.

- Death band overnight, 3-4”/hr:

Sunrise, about 70% though. About 27” had fallen, before the winds started:

Winding down, about 32”, accounting for drifts:

The big kahuna is, of course, February 2010. The region saw between 5-7 feet of snow over the 12 day period from Jan 29 - Feb 10. We ran out of space to put it, lol.

Will winter ever end?

poJOJoa.jpg

an0Gg4q.jpg

It did remain in the 70s thru most of last night, and warmed back to 75*F around noon today after yesterday’s high of 78*F, but we’re plunging back thru the 50s now behind the front, despite the midday April Sun, and that huge mass of Arctic air over the Hudson Bay doesn’t want to budge anytime soon. Skipped Spring?

Even if it doesn’t snow, this kinda reminds me of 2007.

Leaves still slow to emerge here, even after that stretch of mid/upper 80s temps a week ago.

This was taken yesterday evening. The large, old-growth Tulip Poplars are leafing out, with the old Black Oak in between them still dormant. The smaller trees in front are White Pine and Slippery Elm, both of which are still largely dormant/in bud state. The Black Locust (barely in few to the left) is completely dormant, not even seeing buds yet.

I was watching the news yesterday and they did a long range, elevated view of the WH and I noticed the same thing... I was expecting the trees to be in full summer mode there after that heat but they did not look that full yet.

Yeah, I think the mini heatwave in February followed by the crash to winter in March shocked the trees a bit. It’s almost like they’re hesitating, expecting another crash.

We had low/mid 80s in the middle of February, surrounded by several weeks of spring-like warmth, and just as trees were starting to wake up, the hammer dropped. That nasty January cold wave and the general lack of precipitation from November to January couldn’t have helped, either. It was a winter full of temperature swings, especially during the second half.

FWIW, the old growth Tulip Poplars are looking pretty good/unscathed so far. I’ve never seen them get duped by a false spring, and as a result they’re leafing out heavily while some other species are still gathering themselves.

My trees appreciate the compliment. :)

Yeah, they’ll often shed weak limbs during summer microburst events, but they actually do the majority of their “deadwooding” during fall/early winter windstorms, after the stress of the summer heat. By February/March, this self-pruning process is largely complete, and they’re ready to start the growing season from their stronger, consolidated structural foundations.

Some trees shed more than others, too. The larger trees in those photos are several hundred years old and exposed to the elements on a more frequent basis. They’ve also stood through centuries of great storms, like Hazel and the 19th century hurricanes, the June 1989 blowdown (at least 135mph, probably over 150mph), the 2012 Derecho, etc. So they don’t shed as much vs the smaller understory trees and evergreens.

Looking at the data from IAD..definitely some large temperature swings in recent months. Some high winds too. All around anti-tree, anti-flower weather.

Leaves are slow to come in here too due to the big SSW event that sent temperatures crashing in late February after a very warm December, January, and first half of February. It's one of the slowest years ever even with plenty of warm days in April.

Overnight lows are cooler than the past couple of years due to lower sea surface temperatures.
