Where's the snow? -- Winter 2017-18 thread

Thanks to a high pressure ridge, no accumulation yet. None in the foreseeable future. But we just had that freaky snow from Mexico/Texas on up into New England...especially for the Buffalo Bills game.

Last two winters we've had 11" total (5" one year, 6" the other). Normal is 20"...which is forecast THIS winter.

We haven't had a snow thread in a few years and some pics might offset the fires in California. So, post 'em if you got 'em.

Central MA here. Snow all day yesterday which added up to about 6-7". It was never as bad as it was in Buffalo though. Nothing close to those white-out conditions.

The fire department where I live suspended issuing any burn permits, I can't think of the last time there has been any significant amount of rain. I hope we get some significant snow, it feels like its been several years.

It showed up in Houston this year. This does not happen around here very often.

Austin got between 3”-5” a few nights ago. Most of Central/South Texas ranged between 2”-6”. Of course it all disappeared by midday the next day.

I saw some snow last week while I was at a stop light. Hundreds of snowflakes. Thousands, even. Of course, it's so warm and dry that they didn't even make the street wet.

Weatherman just said it doesn't look like a white Christmas this year. Possible snow on the 23rd but might just be flurries...again.

At my dad's house in upper Michigan. He's 91. Go help him with his snowblower if you're wanting snow.

Those guys in the Upper Peninsula are manly men. My sister dated one of them. He rode his Harley home from New Hampshire for Christmas. He said, "It's not that cold."

Yeah, when I talked to Daddy this morning he was telling me usually December is worse and there's 'only' a foot of snow so far.

Thank goodness. I despise the snow. It's great for little kids to sled around (and to close schools ) but that's about it.

Re: Where's the snow? -- Winter 2017-18 thread

We have had about 5-10 cms so far. About the same again expected this week sometime. I went downtown to city hall last night to absorb the festivities (N.B.: I don't get out much). There was a winter fair in the square, with rides and food and bric-a-brac kiosks, and of course the skating rink. It was very busy and full of merriment. The photo does not properly convey how colourful it was, nor the cheery, fun atmosphere.

I'm in Rochester so for those not familiar, it's half way between Buffalo to the west and Syracuse to the east. Buffalo gets worse storms because it's on two lakes but statistically Syracuse gets more snow on average among the 3 of us. They are calling for mid 40's tomorrow which will be a welcome relief since it's been very frigid and some wind chills below zero.

The weather remains in the 50s here through the midweek than it will cool down to winter weather with a chance for snow on the morning of Christmas Eve. On the weather forecast last night they didn't say how much snow yet for next Sunday, but its a possibility.

We finally got some snow accumulation. It started about 3am and should stop about 7am. Weatherman says it's moving fast at 70mph. Hopefully it will stick around for Christmas day.

Re: Where's the snow? -- Winter 2017-18 thread

Not a single snowflake here. Kinda bullshit if you ask me. I remember it snowing on/around Christmas all the time when I was little. From travelling in it to see relatives or playing in it during the school break. I don't think we've had snow on Christmas in probably 4-5 years. In that time it has usually fallen in Jan-Feb.

The weatherman keeps saying we'll get some flurries later today, but I have my doubts.

Earlier in the week they were calling for rain and a green Christmas. That changed and we got about 4" in the last couple days. So it looks like a Norman Rockwell painting. Just enough that everything is covered but not so much as to cause problems.

We got a couple inches here in southern Ontario yesterday with a bit more expected tonight. So not bad, we'll have a white Christmas but the roads will be decent enough for driving.
