I'm including extreme rainfall here because that's  what causes
ice ages ... excess precipitation. If  you want to know how much
snow would fall  if a rainstorm should change to snow, just add
a  zero.  (One inch of rain - add a zero - will turn to 10 inches of
snow.) Plus, rainfall has increased so dramatically that I'm only
including accumulations  of two inches or more.

Wow!!!  My husband and I have read Not by fire but by Ice twice, and given it to
numerous people.  So we couldn’t wait to read Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary
Leaps.
It’s great! I was especially interested in it, because I have a Bachelor of Science
degree with a major in Zoology, from Sydney University, Australia.

Midwest under a glacier already? - 22 Dec 08 - Funny how he put this one:

"And that's exactly what it will be Tuesday night and Wednesday. Frightful. This storm won't be as strong as the last two that have come by, yet the precipitation it will produce will be just as widespread and perhaps even more so. Moderate snowfall is expected from the Midwest to northern New England. Most of that area is under a glacier already and is guaranteed a white Christmas. Just south of the snow, there will be a treacherous mix of sleet and freezing rain.

Detroit - Biggest snowfall in quarter century – more on the way - 20 Dec 08 - "The snow depths could be anywhere from 10 to 13 inches," Matt Mosteiko, a meteorologist intern for the National Weather Service in White Lake Township, said of early next week.

 

Friday's snowfall broke the region's previous record of 8.7 inches in 1973. It will go down in history as one of the 25 biggest accumulations in one snowfall in metro Detroit since the late 19th Century. The area's worst snowfall of 24.5 inches occurred in 1880, according to the weather service.

Snowfall sets record in Beaumont, Texas - 11 Dec 08 - An upper level storm system dumped as much as two inches of snow on some parts of Southeast Texas, causing icy roads and power outages. Four bridges in Port Arthur were closed due to ice.

 

In Houston, air travelers were delayed while workers at the city's two major airports deiced planes.

 

"Beaumont has had two inches of snow and that's the highest snowfall ever recorded in the month of December," said Sam Shamburger, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Lake Charles.

 

"It is the earliest snowfall ever recorded in Beaumont. The previous record for the earliest measurable snowfall was Dec. 22, 1989," Shamburger said.

Snow Ramps Up Across South - A rare early December heavy snow event unfolded across the south starting late on the 10th and really ramping up on the 11th. A upper level low deepened across the northern gulf and produced a swath of snow from southeast Texas, Louisiana into Mississippi

 

Snowfall amounts ranged from 1 to 8 inches across our service area. The heaviest snow with an axis from McComb to Morton Mississippi. Areas that did receive more than 2 or 3 inches had trees and power lines down from the weight of the snow which resulted in many power outages.

Dec 11 One to two feet of snow expected in Cascades - Snow levels could drop to 500 feet, meaning that much of the Seattle area could see snow  
Dec 10

Earliest snowfall in Houston since 1895 - The flurries tied a record for Houston's earliest snowfall ever. Since 1895, records indicate, snow has fallen this early just once — on Dec. 10, 1944.
 

The snowfall caught forecasters by surprise. A significant chance for snowfall didn't show up in computer models until about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Because a freeze was expected overnight, a winter-weather advisory was issued Wednesday evening for much of Southeast Texas, including Harris County, because of the potential for slick, icy conditions on bridges and other exposed areas, and by 9 p.m. the overpass on the Eastex Freeway at the beltway had frozen, authorities said.

Paul Ramirez spent several minutes digging through his truck Wednesday evening outside the Fry's electronics store on West Road, trying to find something he could use to scrape the ice and snow from the windshield of his truck.

"It's really coming down," said Ramirez, 33, as he tried dragging a large envelope across his window. "This is crazy. It's Houston — we shouldn't need to keep ice scrapers in our cars."

Snowiest start to winter on mountaintops of NC - The last two weeks of November were the third coldest on record. In Boone, the average temperatures for November 16-30, 2008, was 32.39. The only colder years for that period were: 1950 at 28.82 and 1929 at 31.93. Boone weather data goes back 80 years.


With 5.7" of snow recorded in October and November this year, it was the 12th snowiest on record. The snowiest Oct-Nov ever in Boone was 1968 with 17.5", followed by 1930 with 10.7" and 1950 with 10". In contrast, 30 of the past 80 years have had no measurable snow in Oct-Nov.

 

Mountaintop data does not go back far enough to make large generalizations; however, this has been the snowiest start to winter since they started keeping records at Fred's General Mercantile atop Beech 1992. In Oct-Nov this year, they recorded 16.1" of snow. The next snowiest was 1995 at 13". The average snowfall in Oct-Nov there since 1992 has been 4.6".

"The average temperature in November was 46.6 degrees, 6.2 degrees below
normal. The last time November was colder was 32 years ago.

"This November, in fact, was the fifth-coldest since records started being kept
in Charlotte, in October 1878.
 

“With just a few exceptions, it's been persistently cold,” said John Tomko, a
National Weather Service meteorologist who looks for trends.
 

"The low on Nov. 22 at Charlotte/Douglas International Airport was 13 degrees,
the earliest it ever has been that cold in Charlotte.
 

"Tomko said temperatures next weekend will be closer to January levels than
early December."

Early freeze in Florida - Email from reader:
Hi Robert, thanks for your great Website. I check on it everyday.

 

Very cold here in Florida. I have lived in West Central Florida (50 miles north of Tampa) for 12 years. As an avid Gardner I pay attention to the weather. During these 12 years we never had a frost in October, but this year we had a freeze October 29th. Usually the first frost is around Thanksgiving or later. The last two nights we had a freeze and tonight it should be a good one. Whenever it is cold in Florida it also dry so we don't get any snow.  
 

Thanks and best wishes,

Keith Rudell

Sunday's record-tying highs in the middle 80s will be long gone, replaced by Saturday morning lows in the 30s that could bring frost and even freezing conditions to areas away from Lake Michigan.

The coldest summer on record? You may be looking at it – Anchorage, AK - "Right now the so-called summer of '08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees.

 

"That unhappy record was set in 1970, when we only made it to the 65-degree mark 16 days out of 365.

 

"This year, however -- with the summer more than half over -- there have been only seven 65-degree days so far. And that's with just a month of potential "balmy" days remaining and the forecast looking gloomy."

 

               If it’s warming, blame humans. If it’s cooling, blame El Nina.

Rainiest July since 1928 in Anchorage - Thursday should have been smack in the middle of the warmest time of year in Anchorage.
 

Instead, the high temperature of a mere 56 degrees - 10 degrees below normal - equaled a record in the National Weather Service's annals: the lowest high temperature for a July 17. It was also the rainiest July 17 since 1928.
 

And cold. The city averages about 15 days per summer that break 70 degrees, but there have only been two so far this summer, said Bob Hopkins, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Anchorage.

Huge amounts of snow in the Rockies – in July! - “Loop Road in Lander, WY is normally open before Memorial Day,” says reader Thomas Morstad. “This year it’s still not open because of snow. Again, nature did not watch/read and obey the Global Warming Catastrophe.” 

Going-to-the-Sun road, which connects the two sides of Glacier National Park and is usually open by the first week of June, remains closed because huge amounts of snow still blanket the Northern Rockies high country. (In part because Montana had record snowfalls this year.)

 “Perhaps Al Gore and James Hanson are not as important as they present themselves,” Morstad adds.

Historic floods hit America’s Midwest - Thunderstorms and record flooding drenched America’s Midwest again on Friday, prompting severe storm warnings Oklahoma to Wisconsin.

Over the last month the Midwest has suffered under a constant barrage of storms. Over this time, Iowa has totted up over 450mm (18 inches) of rain and is now buckling under the strain, with 83 of Iowa’s 99 counties declared disaster areas.

500-Year Flood - Many rivers across the Plains and Midwest are at record flood stages. Officials say the Cedar River in Iowa is at a 500-year flood level. Virtually all of Cedar Falls, Iowa is under water. Widespread evacuations orders are in place and flooding has closed miles of interstates and local roads and highways across the heartland.

A new storm system is forecast to reach the Midwest
by Sunday, bringing more heavy rain that will continue into early next week.

Historic flood event - incredible crop losses - The evacuations in Cedar Rapids, population 120,000, followed a round earlier Thursday when some residents of Iowa City and Cedar Bluffs were also told to head for higher ground.
 

Storms brought up to 5 inches of rain across west central Iowa early Thursday — primarily in the Raccoon River basin.

This year's spring deluge led some to compare it to the disaster of 1993 when the Mississippi River and its tributaries turned parts of the nation's midsection into a gigantic lake.

"We are in the middle of a historic flood event in the Upper Mississippi Valley,” said meteorologist Bill Karins of NBC's WeatherPlus. Most major Iowa rivers are cresting at all-time record levels and this water will soon raise the Mississippi River to its second highest levels in recorded history north of St. Louis.
 

"The story along the Mississippi River will be all the mid-sized and small towns without large levees," he added. "On the consumer side, thousands upon thousands of acres of farmland will be flooded for weeks with incredible crop losses."

Corn prices hit a record high again Thursday and the short-term outlook did not look good.

Another foot of snow forecast for Montana and Idaho - While eastern states of the US have been reeling under a heat wave the last few days, an unusual “winter” storm has brought June snow across the northwest.

Residents of Eastern Oregon woke Monday morning to a scene more akin to winter, with snow blanketing gardens and with white out conditions on the roads. Heavy snow fell in the Cascades forcing trucks crossing the mountain passes to use tyre chains. It was the first time in 30 years that snowploughs had been used in June to clear Steven’s Pass.

The unusual cold and snowy weather is being attributed to this year’s La Nina, which brought parts of the US their snowiest winter on record. Today the storm has moved on to Montana and Idaho. As much as a foot of snow (12 inches) is forecast.

Up to a foot of snow expected in the Rockies - Ten days before the arrival of summer, a cold storm moving through the Intermountain West tonight will produce chilly rain and snow as low as 4,000 feet,  where around a foot of snow may accumulate. Lower elevations will endure a chilly rain with perhaps a few wet snowflakes mixed in.

The snow will create slippery driving conditions on many roads and highways throughout the mountains.

More rain expected Monday - Large swaths of three Midwest states were declared disaster areas as days of vicious storms and flooding forced rescuers into boats and residents to flee flooded communities.
 

The National Weather Service warned that another round of storms could drop as much as 3 inches of rain on Indiana late Monday.
 

"This thing came on fast,” said Governor Daniels, “with such a radical deluge of water that people were describing going from a feeling of security to waist-deep water in a matter or 15 or 20 minutes."

"The fire station in Edinburgh, IN reported a storm total of just under 11 inches of rain (10.94").  There is a great deal of farm land from I-70 and south.  There will certainly be crops that are a total loss.  There is no place for all this water to go. Fields will likely remain flooded for a while and the crops will rot.

Record floods across the Midwest - Torrential rain this week has unleashed serious flash and river flooding from western South Dakota east to southern Wisconsin and south-central Indiana.

 

In Indiana, late-week rainfall of at least 11 inches triggered record-breaking flooding on both the East and West forks of the White River.

 

Torrential rain over neighboring Illinois lead to potentially record-breaking flooding along the lower Wabash River.

 

Meanwhilie, record-toppling flooding was underway or forecast as of Sunday for middle and mid-northern Iowa. Early week flooding was forecast at record levels along the upper Des Moines River at Stratford.

 

In western South Dakota, it was the rain-swollen Cheyenne River that crested at a record height at Plainview.

Mud, snow to greet Memorial Day hikers in Vermont - Fresh snow and lots of old mud - exactly what people are likely to find near the peaks of Vermont’s higher mountains this Memorial Day weekend, due to the snowy winter and some fresh flurries this week.

 

Eighteen inches of snow remained on the ground near the top of Mount Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak. The snow cover includes some of the 3.5 inches of fresh fluff that descended on the mountaintop Monday. More light snow is likely over northern Vermont summits today and Thursday.

 

High elevation snows forced the state Agency of Transportation to close Vermont 108 through Smugglers Notch on Monday night.  It might close again today if predicted new snow materializes, highway officials said.

Northeast Snow in May - The unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day, is a week away, but snow is in the forecast for parts of the Northeast. With chilly air pouring into the Northeast, a weak disturbance's showers will mix with wet snowflakes in the higher elevations of northern Pennsylvania and southern New York early Monday morning. The snow will only make an appearance, not falling heavily enough to accumulate. Still, many residents would agree that the end of May is for picnics and sunshine, not snow.

Record snow in Idaho - 10 May 08 - McCall, ID – The spirit of winter is carrying well into May this year at Brundage Mountain Resort. The resort has received another six inches of fresh snow this week, allowing a final extension of lift operations for Saturday, May 10th.

 

This is the first time on record that Brundage Mountain has extended its season into the month of May.

 

“The snow keeps coming, and the warm temperatures are staying away,” said resort spokesperson April Russell. “Slope conditions have been excellent and so has the interest from our guests, so we’re staying open to share this great experience and to share our appreciation.”

 

Most likely the snow will break the all time record tonight.

Worst late frost in 30 years in California vineyards - April brought a series of unusually late frosts to vineyards baring the tender, green shoots of spring. The frosts hit the whole of Northern California, including Mendocino and the Napa Valley. Frost is hardly unusual in California and in some years it can be severe, what distinguishes this season is the duration and severity of the frost. The cold snap lasted twenty or more nights in some places, a first for many vintners. The last time such a brutal spell of frost occurred was over thirty years ago.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/world/news/06052008news.shtml

More snow on the way - Look what this big storm has in store for the Dakotas and eastern Montana Thursday. The Black Hills could get a heavy accumulation. By that we mean more than 6 inches. The High Plains in general will probably get a couple of inches of wet snow.

Normal highs are in the 60s across the Dakotas this time of year. Thursday however, the temperature will do well to reach 40 from the central Dakotas westward.

Anchorage digs out after record storm
Heaviest snowfall on record after April 1 - 27 Apr 08 - A day after Anchorage endured one of the city’s heaviest one-day snowfalls on record, people spent what would normally be a spring Saturday digging out and slogging through nearly 2 feet of fresh snow and slush.
 

The snowfall was the third-heaviest in a single day since the National Weather service started keeping records in Anchorage in 1915. Seventeen inches fell in West Anchorage and up to 22 inches in Muldoon.
 

Before Friday, the most snow that had ever fallen in one day after April 1 was 8.3 inches. The day’s official tally at the airport: 15.5

Apr 17 Winter to return to the Rockies, Pacific Northwest - 30 degrees below normal! - Wintry weather will soon return to the Northwest and northern Rockies. All of western Canada will also be impacted by this cold blast. The cold will begin to plow into the Northwest Friday with the worst of it coming later Saturday and Sunday. Through western and northern Montana, odds are temperatures will never leave the 20s Sunday afternoon - 30 degrees below normal. To make it worse, it will snow, and there is the potential for a big snowstorm from Montana into Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Apr 12 Heavy snow breaking plows in Yellowstone - 12 Apr 08 - Yellowstone officials say heavy snow has resulted in the breakdown of two bulldozers as road crews attempt to remove snow from park roads before they open for spring.

Yellowstone spokesman Al Nash said this winter stands out as the snowiest in recent memory. "This is the most significant winter in terms of snowfall in years," he said.

During the month of March alone, the park’s South Entrance received 101 inches. The snow is so deep in some places that the bulldozer operators have to push the snow off the roadway in layers to feed it to rotary plows that then blow it off the road surface.

Apr 1 Snow-water content at Siskiyou Summit, Oregon "an astounding 559 percent of normal," breaking a 56-year-old record - 1 Apr 08 - After some 20 winters of taking precise snow measurements, Steve Johnson is an old hand at using a snow measurement tube.

But the snow ranger for the Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest couldn't believe the reading he took Monday morning after plumbing the snow depths at the Siskiyou Summit site, near where Interstate 5 crests the Siskiyous.

The snow-water content at the summit was an astounding 559 percent of normal at 17.9 inches, which broke a 56-year-old record of 17.4 inches for the end of March set in 1952. Records have been kept of the snow survey site at 4,600-feet elevation since 1935. The average water content is 3.2 inches.

In addition to the Siskiyou Summit, Johnson measures three sites higher on Mount Ashland at the end of those months. "The story is that the mid-elevation snowpack is far above normal," he said, referring to mountain snow survey sites that are from 4,000 to 5,300 feet elevation.

Remote snow telemetry measuring devices (SNOTEL) report the Oregon coastal range sites are currently 430 percent of normal for snow-water content, he said.

Mar 29 Spring petals and snow: Another foot of snow expected - A rare spring storm dumped icy rain and snow throughout Western Washington Friday.

"We were 13 degrees below our normal high temperatures." said Jeff Michalski, meteorologist at the National Weather Service." The last time the Seattle area received more than an inch of spring snow was in April 1985.

Snow blanketed trees, grass and cars in West Seattle, on Queen Anne, Capitol Hill and other neighborhoods. More than an inch coated the ground in some Eastside cities. Some cities on the Olympic Peninsula reported up to 5 inches.

Forecasters say the snow will continue through the weekend, and temperatures should remain about eight to 10 degrees cooler than what is expected for late March.

More snow was expected on Snoqualmie Pass overnight — 7 to 10 inches by 6 a.m. and another 5 to 7 inches between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Mar 28 Heavy snow covers parts of northeast USA - A winter storm hit parts of northeastern USA on Thursday dumping a record amount of snow across a number of states. A record was set in Davenport, Washington DC, where 3.4 inches of snow (8.6cm) fell in just 24 hours, more than double the previous record of 1.5 inches (3.8cm) set in 1985.

The National Weather Service forecasts more snow along the north east coastline, from Pennsylvania to southern Maine. States within this region are expected to receive between 1 and 3 inches (2.5-7.5cm) of snow on Friday.

Mar 27 Almost a foot of snow in Washington State - A snow storm stalled over eastern Pierce and King County foothills last night. Reports from Bonney Lake and Eatonville were anywhere between 3-4". Enumclaw reported 6 inches. Cumberland reported 10 inches.

"And believe it or not, a few spots of snow remain in the forecast for the next few days as a ridiculously complex pattern sets up shop, made even more challenging by the fact that if you think it's hard to get snow in January, it's much more difficult to get it in late March.

"Generally speaking, snow levels are around 700-1,000 feet during the day and 500 feet at night, but the air mass is set up that any kind of decent intensity in a passing shower could temporarily lower the snow level down to the surface. That's what was happening Wednesday evening, and will be the case through perhaps Saturday morning."

Mar 23 Snow Fans Say, "Let's Go For The Record!" -  Milwaukee is less than 13 inches of snow away from the biggest recorded snowfall in the city's history. Some people say since we're already this close, we might as well pile on the snow until we're number one.

Ninety-six inches of snow makes for a pretty big mess. Some walkways have been shoveled dozens of times this season.

Believe it or not, there are some who say they wouldn't mind another fifteen inches.
"Might as well win the record, right?" said Ryan Baker, a lifetime Milwaukee resident.

Another snowfall like Friday's (12") and Milwaukee residents could say they survived the city's worst snowfall ever. But most seem to be perfectly happy with second place.

The number one snowfall was 120 years ago, so even if Milwaukee doesn't reach number one, we can at least say it's the biggest snowfall anyone living in southeastern Wisconsin has seen here. http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/16930491.html

Storm Dumps 15+ Inches of Snow - Milwaukee - By the time the snow stopped around 4 a.m. Saturday, the storm had dumped 15 inches of snow in Waukesha County, up to 16 inches in Milwaukee County and 12 1/2 inches in parts of Ozaukee County.

The 12.9 inches of snow at Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport set a new daily record, smashing the old mark of 6.2 inches set back in 1992.

Snow-weary Madison, which had already shattered its record snowfall level this season, neared the 100-inch mark late Friday. Dane County Regional Airport received about seven inches to raise the season total to 99 inches, far above the previous high of 76.1 inches that fell in 1978-'79.

Kenosha also broke its winter snowfall record, said John Prijic, the city's street superintendent. He said the city had 11.4 inches by 7 p.m. on Friday. That plus the 86.5 inches that fell on the ground so far this winter broke the record of 90 inches set in the winter of 1978-1979.

Mar 23 Southern Frost and Freeze - 23 Mar 08 - Cold air spilling southward early this week will lead to frosts and freezes as far south as the Gulf Coast. While the area of near-freezing will reach into Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia Sunday night, the most southerly penetration of frosts and freezes will occur Monday night.

It will be cold enough for a killing freeze to stretch southward into northwestern Florida early Tuesday morning with widespread frosts and freezes likely from eastern Mississippi and most of Alabama into Georgia and the Carolinas.

Mar 22 Caribou sets snowfall record - It’s official. The 2007-08 snow season in northern Maine is one for the record books.

The old record of 181.1 inches of snow recorded in Caribou, set in 1955, was shattered by noontime Friday when the National Weather Service in Caribou recorded 182.5 inches of snow since the start of the season.

It didn’t stop there. Heavy snow and winds gusting up to 50 mph continued throughout the day, creating blizzard conditions around much of northern Maine.

By Friday afternoon close to 15 inches of snow had fallen in central Aroostook County and a blizzard warning was still in effect from the National Weather Service. The St. John Valley saw about a foot of new snow, while southern portions of the county got around 7 inches. A couple of more inches of snow were expected to accumulate through Friday.

Snow drifts ranged from about 5 feet to 10 feet in some areas, said meteorologist Mark Bloomer. Drifts along the sides of northern Maine roads, already several feet high, were even higher with the latest storm.

The blizzard also claimed another roof in Fort Kent with the collapse of a portion on the large town-owned packing shed Friday morning. Two other storage sheds collapsed in Fort Kent last weekend.

Mar 21 Aberdeen, South Dakota Digs Out From Record Snowfall - 21 Mar 08 - Snow blowers, shovels, and snow plows were top priority Friday.

My dad wanted to play. He wanted to have a snowball fight," said Braxton Farmen.

But for right now, Dad is busy plowing the snow off of the driveway.

"It's pretty deep so the snowblower is having a tough time getting it all out but we will get it done," said Dale Farmen.

City officials would also like to remind everyone to remember to move your vehicle if you are parked along a snow plow route.

Mar 22 Ann Arbor, Michigan has most snow since record-keeping began in 1880- And it's not over yet - That's because we're not even into April, a month that normally averages almost 2.5 inches of that pesky white stuff. If this winter continues the way it's been going, we could be in store for more than that.

Normally in March, we get about 8.3 inches of snow, said Dennis Kahlbaum, a University of Michigan weather observer. So far in March, with more than a week to go, we've seen 16.7 inches. A good chunk of that came Friday night and early Saturday morning, when a storm dropped 7.5 inches of snow in Ann Arbor.

Mar 11 New Mexico snowpack most in 3 decades- Expected water runoff 80% above normal - New Mexico's water managers are gearing up for what could be the biggest river runoff season in nearly three decades.

A bountiful March 1 snowpack means runoff on the Rio Grande through New Mexico's midsection is expected to be more than 80 percent above normal, federal forecasters said Monday.

"The snowpack we're sitting on is something we haven't seen, especially in the northern part of the state, in quite a while," said Richard Armijo, a snow surveyor with the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

High stream flow (from the runoff) is already noticeable on the Rio Grande. On Monday at Otowi, northwest of Santa Fe, the river was flowing at 50 percent above average for March 10.

Mar 6 Record snowfall leads to traffic gridlock in Texoma - SHERMAN, TX -- Many Texomans were out braving the treacherous weather as traffic came to a standstill in most of the area. The snowy conditions made driving worse Thursday afternoon. As businesses and schools closed early for the day, the cars hit the road, causing quite the gridlock.

Visibility became very limited throughout the afternoon, sometimes down to one-eighth of a mile in true white-out type situations. The snow started falling around noon Thursday in Grayson County and did not let up until well into the night, causing slick roads, fender benders and make-shift parking lots on major roadways.

Feb 27 Buildings collapse under weight of the snow in New England - Another snowstorm swept across New England on Wednesday, dumping so much heavy snow that some buildings collapsed under the weight.

An unoccupied summer pizza shop collapsed at Weirs Beach in Laconia, N.H, officials said, while in Ossipee, N.H., several people fled as the roof fell in at the Over Easy Cafe.

"People can't keep up with the snow. They think it's going to stop, but it's just not stopping," said Shawn Greenwood, owner of Greenwood Construction, in St. Johnsbury, Vt.

"I've been roofing for 20 years and this is the worst I've ever seen," he said. "I was shoveling a roof off one day two weeks ago and the house next door caved in."

With 144.5 inches of snow so far this season, Caribou, Maine, is on pace to break the record of 181.1 inches for the entire season.

Farther west, snow piled up nearly a foot deep in northwest Indiana. Snow also blew across the Ohio Valley and farther south into parts of Ohio, Kentucky, middle and eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina. Some areas in the mountains of western North Carolina could see up to 10 inches of snow.

Record January Snowfall at Heavenly Ski Area

• One Hundred and Sixty-Seven Inches of Snow Fell in January (14 feet in one month!)
• Base Depth: Over 100 Inches
• Snowfall So Far This Season: Over 300 Inches

South Lake Tahoe, CA/NV— 7 Feb 08 — Heavenly Mountain Resort received 167 inches of snow in January, marking the most snowfall in a single month since the resort began keeping snowfall data in the 1975-76 season.

"We’re in one of those epic snow cycles that the Sierra mountain range is famous for,"" said Blaise Carrig, Heavenly’s chief operating officer. "We beat the next closest month by 20 inches. There is no destination in the U.S. that has the kind of snow we have right now."

In addition to the record snowfall, Heavenly’s snow pack is 23 percent higher than average, its base depth ranges from 78 to 100 inches, and it has received over 300 inches of snowfall to date this winter. In response to this amazing amount of snow, Heavenly has announced that it is extending its season into May. The resort had planned to close for the season on Sunday, April 20, 2008, but now has an expected closing date of Sunday, May 4, 2008.

Feb 24 Record snowfall in Scranton, PA -  Friday’s snowstorm was not only the biggest of the year, but it set a record. The snowfall was heavy, especially in the Upvalley, where Carbondale finished with close to 10 inches. At the height of the storm, it came down at more than an inch per hour.

The storm set a daily maximum snowfall record at the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton International Airport, which received 5.1 inches of snow. The old record was 2.7 inches, in 2001.

For perspective, we’ve had almost twice as much snow this winter than we had to this point last winter. But keep in mind we saw a record-breaking snow in April last year.

Feb 22 Winter storm blankets much of Northeast - The massive system thath brought freezing rain, sleet and snow to parts of Kentucky, Missouri and Illinois on Thursday lumbered eastward and northward overnight.

The weather service predicted 6 to 9 inches for New York City, up to a foot in suburban counties, and 10 inches in Connecticut. Storm warnings extended northward across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. "Already, this is the most significant storm of the season for New York City," said National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Connolly.

Earlier, the storm dropped up to 4 inches of snow on parts of southwest and central Ohio.

The National Weather Service issued an ice storm warning through 7 a.m. Wednesday for the Washington and Baltimore regions, and from western Tennessee into New England. The system also dropped snow in the Midwest. Up to 4 inches of snow and sleet was forecast for northwestern New Jersey.

In the mountains of central Colorado, rescue teams on Sno-Cats and snowmobiles delivered food, medicine and propane to people trapped in their homes by huge snow drifts.

Burlington, Vermont expecting more than 100 inches of snow this season
Reader June Mona says:
We had 16+ inches of snow in our most recent storm which brings the Burlington total to 85 inches
for this season so the forecasters are predicting over a 100 inches for the season. That has only happened 9 times in the last 120 years. 

We are expecting a storm tomorrow and another one on Tuesday. Our town, as many others, has essentially run out of salt for the roads so only dangerous intersections and steep hills are being salted. We are tired of winter, and yearn for the sun.
           Thanks for the info, June

Feb 9 Major snowfall shuts down all major passes across Washington Cascades - According to KOMO TV this morning, blizzard conditions have shut down all major passes across the Washington Cascades, including I-90 ... again. Truckers must wait - and wait - or detour hundreds of miles in order  to reach Seattle. 
Feb 6 Cold blast to follow record snow in Bismarck - A week that started with a record snowfall will go out with a nasty blast of cold air this weekend. The 3.9 inches of snow that fell between midnight Sunday and midnight Monday broke the old record of 2.4 inches. That standard was set on Feb. 4, 1967.

The big chill starts Friday afternoon when an Arctic front comes through, bringing winds out of the northwest and knocking down the temperature.

Saturday's high will be 5 to 10 above in the south and colder farther north, while Saturdays lows will be from 15 to 25 below," said Janine Vining, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Bismarck, ND.

Feb 7 Major snowstorm grounds flights, snarls traffic - As many as 800 vehicles remained stranded Thursday morning near Madison, Wisconsin, according to Wisconsin National Guard Lt. Col. Tim Donovan. Snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles were used to check on the stranded motorists and bring them food or fuel

General Mitchell International Airport at Milwaukee stopped all flights Wednesday afternoon due to whiteout conditions, while carriers at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport canceled about 1,000 flights.

In upstate New York, freezing rain and snow contributed to a pileup that killed one person and sent another to a hospital, authorities said. In Wisconsin, two traffic fatalities were blamed on the storm.

Feb 7 High in Fort Yukon colder than previous record low 
Hi Robert.
I'm not seeing anything in the news about the record low
temperatures in and around Alaska. For an example, the high yesterday
2/6/08 in Fort Yukon was colder than the previous record low. The high
was minus 42; the record low for the date was minus 41. The low temperature
was minus 56 (a new record). This is only one example of many new records.
Thanks,

Feb 7 Too much snow for some Spokane-area roofs - 7 Feb 08 - Heavy snow is stressing roofs in the Spokane area. KHQ reports a roof collapsed this morning at a Northwest Bedding store in Airway Heights.

Last night a section of the roof collapsed at a fire station in Valleyford, southeast of Spokane, as six workers were removing snow. Two fell but were not hurt.

Fire Station 82 had been evacuated and vehicles removed because of cracking noises. The snow on the roof was more than 2 feet deep in places.

Eighteen inches of snow fell in the last 24 hours on top to 6 feet of snow already there, Idahna Mayor Karen Clark said Sunday.

"We have buildings with snow on them in danger of collapsing. Snow around doors in danger of bursting, some homes have already sustained damage," Clark said.

The town does not have the resources to deal with so much snow, according to the mayor.

Feb 5 Super Tuesday snow could snarl vote - The heaviest snow on Super Tuesday was to sock Colorado, the northern Plains and the Great Lakes by nightfall..

"We're expecting for the Milwaukee area anywhere between 9 and 11 inches," said J.J. Wood, a National Weather Service meteorologist. Up to 10 inches was expected from southwest Wisconsin through the Madison area up toward Port Washington. Several inches of snow fell in central and northern Wisconsin on Monday.

So far this winter, Milwaukee has recorded 52.8 inches of snow, or just over the normal average of 52.4 inches for the entire season with about a month and a half still to go, Wood said.

In Juneau, the Alaska state capital, voters will trudge through more than a foot of new snow.

Another two to three feet of snow are expected at Snoqualmie Pass on I-90 tonight.

Jan 30 US Braces for another wave of storms – 30 Jan 08 - Wicked wind and blowing snow blinded Chicago commuters during the morning rush Wednesday as severe weather headed for the Northeast.

In Minnesota, the temperature dipped to minus 27 in the northeastern region, while blizzard conditions hit the western and northern parts of Michigan.

Midday temperatures at Glasgow, Montana plunged to minus 24; Garrison, North Dakota registered wind chill factors of minus-54 degrees, and Williston, North Dakota dropped to minus-24.

In Buffalo, New York, the temperature went from a high of 54 degrees Tuesday to 21 degrees by Wednesday morning, while temperatures in Rhinelander, Wisconsin dropped overnight from 37 to minus 19.

Snow forced closure of Interstate 90 at Snoqualmie Pass, Washington state's main east-west artery across the Cascade Mountains. Snow also closed highways in Minnesota, Colorado and Wyoming.
 

Yet another storm is taking aim at the interior West.

Jan 30 Snowstorms roll across western USA - A series of storms yesterday brought high winds and snow from Washington State to northern Arizona.

This type of storm is particularly unusual due to its widespread nature. One of the storms traveled up from California after dumping snow across the southern half of the state, then combined with a system originating from the Gulf of Alaska to dump around 3 feet of snow across Colorado. More storm systems are forecast in the coming days.

Jan 28 Record snowfall hits Inland Northwest - Spokane, WA - Sunday saw record snowfall in the Inland Northwest, with more snow over a 24-hour-period than in almost two decades. Numerous areas around the region recorded a foot or more of snow. As a result, the city of Spokane was all but shut down Monday.

Snow totals have been impressive. Spokane International Airport picked up over 10 inches, while a spotter east of Spirit Lake, Idaho reported over 16 inches, and Mt. Spokane has an extra 24 inches of snow. Areas around Coeur d'Alene received up to nine inches of snow Sunday afternoon, with more continuing to fall.

Priest River reported over 14 inches, Diamond Lake in Pend Oreille County had more than a foot of snow, and Mead had nine inches. Totals throughout the area ranged from around two inches near Colville to nearly two feet in the mountains.

It's unlikely that this level of snowfall will continue, however more precipitation is expected.

Jan 26 California braces for more wintry storms  - Meteorologist Richard Thompson said up to 8 inches of rain would fall in the hills outside Los Angeles starting Saturday evening and area ski resorts could get as much as 3 feet of powder.

Several storms have deluged Southern California since Monday. Some areas have received more moisture in that time than during the entire rainy season last year.  Steady rain soaked much of Northern California as well.

               "Back when California was having those big fires and Santa Anna winds," 
               says Tom, "they were attributing it to global warming. Now they`ve got
               the opposite. So what are they going to blame this weather on?"

Jan 24 Snow closes interstate north of LA - More evidence piling up - Hundreds of big rigs were stranded in a snow-covered mountain pass north of Los Angeles Thursday, after Interstate 5, a main artery between northern and southern California, was shut down.

Traffic was halted in both directions on in Tejon Pass, which rises to an elevation of 4,144 feet between the Los Angeles Basin and the San Joaquin Valley.

"There are abandoned cars everywhere," said Wendy Gardner, a manager at Madd Bailey's Pub in Pine Mountain Club, where up to 10 inches of snow fell.

A storm dumped nearly 7 inches of rain in some areas of Ventura County overnight, and 4 inches or 5 inches elsewhere. Santa Barbara's airport got 4.16 inches of rain, breaking the record of 2.45 inches for the day set in 1943.

Yet another storm was forecast for Thursday night.

Jan 19 A dozen daily snowfall records broken - 19 Jan 08 - "A dozen daily snowfall records were broken during the past few days. While not surprising for January, the breadth of the areas affected tells us an important tale about the current weather regime in North America. 

Record daily snow fell from Kansas to Michigan, including parts of Iowa and Minnesota. Another swath of snow fell from northern Georgia into the central Appalachians."

As I write this at 1 PM on Saturday, Jan 19, it is snowing again in Atlanta, the second time in 5 days, quite unusual.

Snow in Daytona Beach, Florida
- Snow flurries, or as one forecaster put it some light frozen precipitation falling out of the sky, caught the attention of residents along Volusia County’s coast early this morning.

Daytona Beach airport reported lows overnight at 32 degrees and in the Pierson area, where fern growers were bracing for the bitter cold, temperatures were in the upper 20s.

"I was pretty excited," said Sandi Petker, who lives on Pawnee Drive in Ormond Beach. "I’ve lived all my life in Florida and it has happened only a couple times before."

By Monday afternoon, more than a foot had fallen in central and inland portions of Maine, adding to what was already the snowiest December since 1995 in Portland, when the total was 37.3 inches.

In Vermont, Burlington’s December total was 44.5 inches, making it the fourth-snowiest December on record.

At Sunday River in Newry, Maine, spokesman Alex Kaufman put December's total at 74 inches, with another half-foot to foot expected today.
