More on the Winter Outlook

I'm intrigued by comparing the 2009/2010 winter to the upcoming 2014/2015 winter. If you missed my first post, click here.

Tonight, I decided to dig deeper into 2009 and the winter that followed. So far, we have had a relatively cool August in 2014. In 2009, the month of August looked very similar. Here's the climate log. Click to enlarge:
So, hypothetically... let's say the upcoming winter will be similar to the winter of 2009/2010. I pulled some data to create a map that shows the total snowfall of the 2009/2010 season:
As we already mentioned, that was a snowy season. I just wanted to see it on a map. I may dig into this a little more as we get closer to winter... I mean, it's only August, right?

I can't remember the early summer of 09/10... Was it like what we have had this year too? Or is it just August that has been the same so far?

Kelsi... June was a little warm, but July 2009 was well below average, too.

2009 was when we had the extreme icing event.

I think that ice storm was early January 2009. I hope we don't get any ice this winter. Snow is ok if the plows can keep up.
