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 3-4" inches. These nuisance snowfall events are getting old quick. 

 

Omaha Eppley has reported less than 6" of snow and is now at half of its season average... what a crappy Winter for snow lovers around here.

As of this morning Grand Rapids, Michigan has had 0.9" of snow this January. and is now at 15.2" since December 1st and is at 22.0" for the season. Of course this is 16" below where we should be as of this date. With the light snow this morning GR should now be over the one inch mark for January 2020 While a trace is being reported at the air port  here at my house I have just under one inch of snow on the ground.

Now up to a grand total of 11" of snow on the Winter season in my backyard in Southwest Omaha, with the 2.5" inches of snow that I measured in my backyard from the wintry mix cocktail we received here yesterday. 

 

Omaha Eppley (which is 15 miles east of me) measured only 1.8" of snow yesterday as is just under 8" of snow for the season to remain well below normal for snowfall totals so far.

Minnesota snow depth and percentile for Jan 23, 2020.  I can hardly complain with that much of northern minnesota at 99% or greater for the date.  We have really cashed in on big snowfalls this year as opposed to our typical clipper nickel and dime snows.

Here is where Grand Rapids stands so far this January and winter season. For January the mean temperature is now at 30.6 at this time that is good for the 7th warmest January in recorded history at GR. For snow fall January is now at 11.4" Since December 1st there has only been 25.7" of snow fall and for the season the total is just at 32.5" at this time we are on track for the least amount of snow fall since the wither of 1986/87 when just 47.6" of snow fell. One side note on that is the in 1986 the level of the great Lakes was very high just like this year. At this time there is 5" of snow on the ground here.

 

Here is where the snow fall totals are at UP north

Looking like my total for January is going to be a pretty respectable 14.5". If February shows up in any meaningful capacity, we should finish near or slightly AA on the year. No thanks to December.

 

EDIT: Either way this goes to show that we can still do well in an otherwise warm pattern.

In what has been a very warm winter to date, somehow we have received 10-15 inches in the KC area along with 3 icing events. So, from a snow contractor’s point of view, it’s been a great winter so far!

 

13.4 inches total for my house on the NE side of KC.

 

Let’s finish strong and finalize the total at 30 inches of snow!!

Here at my house this AM there is still about 1" of snow on the ground and a lot of snow piles. It is suprising as it has been in the mid 30 now for what seams forever and it is now at 35.

Here is the snow cover in at many locations in Michigan As of Wednesday  January 29th   1″ at Grand Rapids, Big Rapids, Hastings, Alma and St. Johns. 2″ at Muskegon, Grand Ledge and Standish. 3″ at Fremont, Beulah, West Branch and Atlanta. 4″ at Alpena, Cheboygan, Traverse City, Petoskey,  Tawas  5″ at Scottville, Hart, Gladwin, Glennie and Lupton. 6″ at Lake City, Mio and Northport. 7″ at St. Ignace and Harbor Springs. 8″ at Houghton Lake. 9″ at Fife Lake and Benzonia. 10″ at Detour. 11″ at Kalkaska. 12″ at Escanaba, Charlevoix, Gaylord and Moran. 13″ at East Jordan and Engadine. 14″ at S. Ste. Marie. 15″ at Garden Corners. 16″ at Mancelona (the most in Lower Michigan. 17″ at Stonington. 18″ Norway and Jacobsville.

21″ at Ishpeming. 22″ at Manistique, Champion, Michagamme, Clarksburg, Beaufort Lake, Agate Lake and Watton. 23″ at Stambaugh. 24″ at Amasa, Iron Mt. and Garden Corners. 25″ at Gladstone, Covington and Harvey. 26″ at Ironwood, Paradise and Arnold. 27″ at Watersmeet and Dollar Bay. 28″ at Munising. 29″ at  Green Garden, Greenland and White City. 30″at Bergland Dam, L’Anse, Paulding, Big Bay, Eagle Mine and Calumet. 31″at  Newberry. 32″ at Herman and Michigan Tech Ski Trail. 33″at  Sawyer. 35″ at Ruth Lake. 38″ at Hancock and Marquette (airport). 50″at  Kearsarge. 54″ at Painesdale (season total 193.6″). 56″ at Tamarack (season total 219.7″). Mt. Horace Greely reports a season snowfall of 212.8″. So while it has been mild with little snow here in  southern lower Michigan there is a lot of snow in much of norther lower and the UP.

yes, At GR the official snow fall for January is at 11.4" that is 8.1" below where GR should be for this date in January. Since December 1 GR official snow fall is at 25.7" and that is -15.7" below where GR should be at this time and for the season the total snow fall at GR is now at 32.5" and that is -16.2" where GR should be at this date for the season. At this time Grand Rapids is on track to have one of the lowest total seasonal snow fall totals since the NWS moved to the current location at the east end of 44th street in 1963.
