Trace of snow and sleet recorded today. Enough to turn the leaves all white and cover vehicle hoods.

Another 1/2 inch of snow today in my backyard, now up to a whopping 8.5" on the season.   We are getting nickel and dimed like crazy here and we are currently under our season average at this point by

POWx mentioned in a vid yesterday a pretty impressive stat. NH is the latest state to join the 30" Club. Already in this very young cold season there have been 7 states hit by snowstorms where 30+ inch totals were recorded! (I don't have the full list as that was not given). It sure is a sign and signal of the flavor of this coming winter. It'd be great if more of us in this Sub could join those other regions in reporting an historic event. In the meantime, here's a snapshot of where we stand YTD:

Just for fun, here's the map from exactly 6 yrs ago (2013). For comparison's sake, we seem to be out-pacing that vaunted season to date.  ;)

12.9" here through today. Not really a bad start honestly, especially considering that I was sure December would torch in the 40s and 50s all month after the Oct/Nov cold episode.

Dean wysocki follows the LRC and here is his winter forecast.

 

https://www.klkntv.com/clip/14957492/201920-winter-weather-outlook

When did this come out? It's interesting that he says the main snows will be in December and March, yet here we are almost 1/2 way through December and nada and the next storm is going south of us as well....

I seen him mention it in his forecast last night. If that verifies Lincoln will have back to back monster winters. I really think this year will be way colder than last year.

So far through 6 different accumulating snowfall events, I am sitting around 5" total this season of snowfall for my backyard.

 

Compared to how others are doing all around us this total doesn't look so great... hopefully that will change in the next few weeks.

Same situation as you. Likely at 4.8 or 4.9" right now. Granted climo here doesn't support a ton of snow before the new year.

At this time the December snow fall total here at Grand Rapids is at 8.4" this is below the average at this time of 11.8" For the season the total is now at 15.2" and this is also below the seasonal average as of this date of 19.3" and it looks like this will stay the same for the foreseeable future

Where I live monthly snowfall amounts are moving downward so far this season! I had 7.5" in October, 2.2" in November & only 1" so far in December amounting to a season total of 10.7" so far.

 

December precipitation is only 0.16" so far, but yearly total is 48.46". Upper 40"s is not unusual here it seems though it shouldn't have been hard for me to reach 50" if the last 4 or so wks. wouldn't have been so dry.

Rhinelander (about 25 miles south of me) just broke the all time calendar year snowfall record which was 131.5”. A large chunk of that was from February when close to 65” fell - that was the most snow I have been around in the US. Assuming my place is a bit higher than that as we get extra lake effect. Quite a year.

The lack of cold air for LES is obvious in your stats. Down here in Marshall, for the 2nd season in a row, November's snow made up for Dec's lack there of. I'm actually right at normal snow fall thru year's end (15.1") for this locale. Believe it or not, at this point last year I was actually 14% ahead of avg!

 

I'll be glad when we can get back to more typical Nov's & Dec's (if that can happen) around these parts.

Sitting at a whopping 6" of snowfall in my backyard so far this Winter season... at the local official reporting station at Omaha Eppley it has reported only 4.4" of snow this year versus what the average of 10" is so far through January 4th.

 

So far this Winter has been a major dud for snowfall around here, especially considering how above normal we were last year. The forecast for the next 10 days gives us very little hope in this area that we will add to these totals  :(.

14.5" here this season, which really isn't a bad total at all.  It just seems like we've had very little because most of it fell two months ago.
