Today I am going to look at the comparison of snow amounts in the CONUS (continental U.S.) over the past few years. We have a Winter Weather Advisory in the extreme S.E. of Michigan until 8 pm for up to four inches of snow which includes Detroit, Jackson and Ann Arbor.
This is the current snow cover as of yesterday (left image) mainly in the Rockies and extreme northern CONUS compared to this time last year (right image or bottom image if you are using a tablet or cellphone). Next are 2017 and 2018 respectively.
And next for your amusement are 2015 and 2016. I am not assuming any particular analog that may appear to be close to what we are showing here, just showing that November can be snowy or not – keep in mind winter hasn’t officially began yet.
Now we look at current northern hemishphere snowcover for last year and this year. The Hudson Bay is showing a little more ice than last year but less in the Arctic.
Thought these would be interesting to look at and as I said I am not assuming anything. I will look at some of the graphics for December sometime later this week.
