Iceresistance

Cold day today, it wouldn't be so bad if this was calm air, but a constant light wind out here makes it around 20-25 degrees the whole afternoon. High 33.

I'm thinking of removing Winter of 22-23 off my signature.. :P

Not only is the snow not here, even 21-22 had a bunch more rainfall on top than this. Both kinds of precip right now I'm sure are behind on the previous winter.

Well, this was the PV configuration ALL the models were predicting prior to the recent SSW spike, but are they right this time for the middle of the month?  I'm really curious to see what Judah Cohen has to say bc this is a good picture...maybe some of you who are good at digging up analogs can say what years were good below ('04, '06, '07, '08). Some of those years iirc were La Nina's.

We (meaning OK) are nearing the end of the peak snow period climatologically, which runs Jan 15-Feb 15 for Tulsa. On average, more than half of the snow we will see has occurred by now, with 3/4 having occurred by Feb 20th, and 90% by March 10th...which is roughly what I consider the end of snow season most years. To that end, as it takes a few weeks for these SSWs to work out, our window is closing quick down here. Hope models start showing something good soon!

At least a few are showing a chance of a dusting next Friday now so I can work with that.

For yesterday the official H/L at Grand Rapids was 15/5. That high of 15 tied December 23rd for the coldest maximum for this winter season so far and it may be the coldest for this winter. So far the coldest low has been +2 on January 31st and that also may be the coldest for this winter season. There was 0.1" of snow fall yesterday and the seasonal total is now at 81.5" It was a sunny day with 87% of possible sunshine. For today the average H/L is 31/18 the record high of 53 was set in 1962 and the record low of -17 was set in 1996. The record snow fall of 10" was recorded in 1900.

Last year, Feb/Mar both came up slightly above average and then we had a cold April in KY.

But still, last March did touch off the season with a nice snowstorm mid month.

@TomWhile not a area wide analog but none the less over here in west Michigan a similar winter season up to this point the winter of 2001/02.

 Here is a fun fact. This past January was the 5th warmest on record here in Grand Rapids but it was just the 3 warmest in the last 30 years. Going back to 1892 at Grand Rapids all the years when the January mean temperature at GR was 30 or better the following February was colder than January except for 2002. In the winter of 2001/02  December 2001 had a mean of 33..9. January had a mean of 30.2 February had a mean of 30.6 and March had a mean of 30.9.  53.9” of snow fall in December 2001 January came in with 17.5, February had 8.7 but March had 22.6 and April added 2.0” more. This year so far at GR November had 28.0” December 36.6” January 13.5” could the winter of 2022/23 be like the winter of 2001/02? BTW May 2002 was the 9th coldest of record at Grand Rapids.

A chilly morning with our 3rd single digit low of this mild winter season with a low of 9.8 above zero. Today was the 3rd coldest temperature of the winter season and the coldest temperature since the 2.8 degrees above zero temperature on Christmas Eve morning. We should rebound today into the mid 20's with the warmup fully underway tomorrow. We should see upper 40's for high temps for most of the rest of the week with even low 50's possible by Wednesday though Friday. Our next rain chances look to be by Thursday.
The record high for today is 63 degrees from 1991. The record low is 1 below zero set way back in 1898. The daily precipitation record is the 1.35" that fell in 1920. The daily snow record is the 9.1" that fell as part of a 2 day snowstorm in 1995 that resulted in 10.5" of snow. That one storm accounted for all but 3.0" of snow that would fall that entire winter season. That season was sandwiched between the epic ice and snow winter of 1993-94 when we received 45.7" of snow on top of a lot of ice and the snowy winter of 1995-96 when we received 81.9" of snow. At the time that was the 2nd snowiest winter in Chester County history behind only the 95.0" that fell in the winter of 1898-99 . However we would blow past that mark with the 86.7" of snow that fell in 2009-10 and surpass the 80" inch snow total again in 2013-14 with exactly 80.0" of snow recorded in that winter.

In SE Wisconsin we're heading towards the time of year where even if we get a lot of snow, the sun is stronger and it melts pretty quickly. Next 10 days being so warm ensures that if we get a "backloaded winter" in the last few weeks of February and maybe into early March that it's the type of snow that only really stays around for a few days, making it useless for snowmobiling and the freeze thaw of the sun makes snowboarding and skiing bad because the man made snow is freeze-thawing every day, giving it that famous "man made snow is icy" feel.

The lake isn't even frozen enough to snowmobile on, at this point I'm ready to siphon the gas out of my snowmobile and get it ready for jet ski.

Some updated stats for the last 130 years for Chester County PA. Comparing ~90 years of data from 1894 to 1983 vs. the last ~40 years to see if any warming or cooling by month and annually away from problem UHI areas like in my area The PHL Airport. Of note 6 months have warmer averages and 6 months have cooler averages. Overall only a 0.3 degree warming during our current warmer cycle.

Tuesday and Wednesday will bring rain to No Tx. Temps happily above freezing at 58-62.  


It would have been nice to receive snow but unfortunately we tend to get sleet and ice.  
A spring like 55 today.

This popped up on today's 12z GFS. Unlikely to verify because its probably missing the forecast for the preceding event. But fun to look at either way.

Well, THATS surprising. Nice. 

The GFS is getting pretty wonky these days.

It didn't do well with the last event at all, but I will say the ICON today and 12z ECMWF yesterday at least hinted at something similar to the GFS...but with more marginal temps and precip. So maybe flakes aren't out of the question, but over a foot probably is lol.

Correct. We've been doing really well at gaining from cold air being in just the right places over here off the edge of the plateau to get mountain-style snows out of those this year, so sticky, pretty wet snow is probably the best outcome. 

What I will say about the GFS is that sometimes this year at huge leads though its flashed what's coming, lost it for 6 days and then went right back to right again. 

I didn't expect anyone (or model) to call that 4 day wreck accurately. Lol. Too much background noise and energy shooting through all at once. We've never exceeded the modeled snowfall since November over here, but this concrete on the ground was fun. The last of it is melting out today.

Pretty day.

We were having our 5th or 6th massive snowstorm storm/blizzard when you had that ice storm. The winter of 1983-1984 is still remembered around here for snow and record cold. I was in Junior High at the time. Many snow days.

I see this recent cold front that brought the arctic chill lit-up the Lakes in certain favored snow belts including the UP and NMI. When I saw these two reports, made me wonder just how closely related they are? Something funny in Yooper Land??

image.png.8f112f02e65d873c9ebf764f196b5ffa.png

As for the one above those, why can't I get paid to observe snow? LOL tho, do we REALLY need to pay for another amongst thousands of volunteered reports. In my book, this falls in the category of needless and wasteful spending. I already know it snows in Michigan, and a lot in certain parts of my state. I don't think we need to pay anyone other than the NWS Peeps to tell us that.

On Saturday, wind gusts peaked at around 127 miles per hour at Mt. Washington. The observatory also recorded an actual temperature of 47 degrees below zero, tying an observatory record set in 1934.

Good morning!  With a lot of sunshine the official H/L at Grand Rapids yesterday was 35/9 there was 84% of possible sunshine thus there was no rain or snow fall. There was officially 5” of snow on the ground at GRR. Here at my house the temperature fell to 21 last night before midnight and then has gone up to the current reading of 35 with clear skies. For today the average H/L is 31/18 the record high of 52 was set in 1991 and the record low of -16 was set way back in 1895. The most snow fall of 7.5” was in 2021. This week looks to be mild with several chances for rain and maybe some snow. Temperatures continue to look to be above average.

Same in western Washington,  those years were awesome for snowfall. We had record cold in 1989.  Froze our pool so thick we could walk on it.  Then we cut the ice out of it and my Dad helped me and my brothers make an igloo out of it.  We placed it on the North side of our house where it would last the longest.  That igloo lasted till March.  Awesome!

It’s interesting to see that the run off from the gutters is a frozen sheet of ice on the concrete even though it’s been above freezing since yesterday morning.  Those cold nights must have froze up the ground pretty good.  Of note, there wasn’t that much melting yesterday even during midday when temps were held up in the upper 30’s along with filtered sunshine.  
 

The sun is back out today so it should get to work!  I gotta tell ya, this is the longest stretch of sunny days since I got here before Christmas.

The big warmup is underway as temps have risen from a midnight low of 21.0 to already above freezing across all of Chester County. The mild and mostly dry weather will continue till our next rain chance on Thursday. A couple models have enough cold air getting involved by overnight Friday into Saturday AM to deliver some snow....but as we have seen this winter - I would not get the snow blowers gassed up just yet!
Of note 9 years ago today (see below) in 2014 we were in the midst of a crippling ice storm sandwiched between 2 snowstorms. We received 10.3" of snow on February 3rd followed by an ice storm that began overnight on the 5th temps fell into the 20's and would remain below freezing for 9 straight days with another snowstorm on the 13th and 14th delivering an additional 20" of snow to Chester County. On the morning of the 15th we had 26" of snow and ice on the ground and finished the month with 39.4" of snow. However, that 39.4" was well below our record snows for the month of February having been exceeded just 4 years earlier with the 62.8" of snow that fell in February 2010 and the all-time greatest monthly snow totals being the 69.8" that fell in February 1899. Of interest there was also snow continuously on the ground during the winter of 2014 for 50 straight days from January 21st through March 11th.May be an image of road, snow, tree and nature

All historical weather data analytics posted by me is specifically for the climate of Chester County PA.  We continually analyze the actual raw non-adjusted NWS certified Coop observed climate data for Chester County.  There have been no post observation adjustments to any of the detailed analytics. All data is sourced from trained NWS observers and spotters. The life blood of science is to challenge what is thought to be known. The concept that climate change etc. is somehow “settled science” describes a religion - a belief system that does not welcome challenges. We should all continue to challenge science!    Snow Totals 2023/24 = 24.5" -  11/28 (0.3") / 12/7 (0.8") / 12/11 (0.8") / 1/6 (2.0") / 1/16 (2.8") / 1/19 (4.5") / 2/13 (10.5") / 2/17 (2.8")

Average Chester County PA Snow at elevations over 660 FT ASL (1983-Present) = 35.9" Snow totals by season: 2022/23 (2.7") /2021/22 (20.5")  2020/21 snow  (52.2") /  2019/20 snow (5.8" )/ 2018/19 snow (35.1" )/ 2017/18 snow (58.5") / 2016/17 snow (24.0")/ 2015/16 snow (40.8")/ 2014/15 snow = (55.3") /2013/14 snow (80.0").

Still have this nice  glacier, snowcover. I have had true winter condition's here over the last week or 2, but this will be washed away next week. Its too bad this cant keep going. It has to warm up and spoil the beautiful scenery outside. Everything is iced up and snowcover everywhere. Oh well, let the bare ground return once again. Temps next week could reach near 50F w plenty of rain chances. By next weekend, we cool back down again w/ temps in the 30s and lows in the 20s. Time is running out here and we are approaching a little over a month left of winter and that's it. Lets see how the rest of this winter evolves.

Wasted winter with active storms.  Torch time for mid February.   Gross.  

I'd rather have torching and rainfall then continued weeks of CAD. Without any LES around here to freshen-up the covering, the snow here gets really bad looking, even without too many warm days. Snow is so fragile. It really is
