    We have been promised snow on Friday!

  2. Gina says:

    Of course, it’s nowhere near the seasonal record in places like St. Louis (63 inches) or Kansas City (67), or Memphis (25)…

    In any case, other sources dispute that forecast. Weather.com predicts it will be about 45 in Memphis and 46 in St. Louis, for example. Weather Underground predicts that it will be 54 in Memphis on Friday and 46 in St. Louis. Accuweather predicts 53 for Memphis and 49 in St. Louis. So I wouldn’t bet on this snow actually happening.

      Gina:
      Those sites were predicting 57 as the high the other day after the temperature had reached 70 and it went to 74. Just yesterday they predicted lower than the temperature was at the time they had their prediction on the screen.
      A few weeks ago they did not predict snow and we got buried in snow.

        So you’re saying you find WeatherStreet to be a more reliable source of forecasts?

        One of these days I should take the time to see what weather websites have the best record for accuracy. On a daily basis, I usually check at least two and dress for the worst of the forecasts.

          Gina: I do not find any of the “Crystal Ball Gazers” to be better prognosticators than any other. I usually keep cold weather gear in my vehicle and dress in layers in case of warm weather.
          But that is from years of working in the elements and dealing with weather conditions in the desert, with a temperature range from 115 to – 10 in any one year.

    • Gina. How did you conflate winter snow depth with a discussion of a late spring? ROFL

      • Gina says:

        LOL. Your post is about snowfall.

      • It is about a late snowfall as a proxy for a late spring and cold weather.. It has nothing to do with winter snow totals.

        You think just like a leftie – you see one word which looks familiar and fly off on a tangent.

      • Gina says:

        Hehe… and other people have been known to call me a radical right-winger. Guess I’m just a contrarian.

        But more on the point: if you restrict it to snowfall in March, this is still nothing. The record for snowfall in March in St. Louis is 28 inches – as above, in 1911-12. The forecast you post is for 1 inch, and as I point out, there are conflicting forecasts, so even that measly one inch may not materialize.

      • This has nothing to do with snow depth, which according to alarmists is increased by global warming. This is a discussion of snow and cold as proxy for failed claims about an early spring. Should I repeat that 14 more times for you?

      • Gina says:

        … that is, it may be as real as the snowfall in Washington DC you were crowing about a week or so ago, before it didn’t happen.

      • The east coast is running 10-20 degrees below normal. Is there some part of that which you find confusing?

      • Gina says:

        This has nothing to do with snow depth, which according to alarmists is increased by global warming. This is a discussion of snow and cold as proxy for failed claims about an early spring.

        1 – you are using one data point (this spring) as a substitute for a trend.
        2 – This isn’t an especially low temperature for St. Louis. The coldest March they had in the last 20 years was a tie between 1993 and 2001 (an average of 41 degrees for the month.)

      • Gina says:

        Wrong: the areas right on the coast are not experiencing any anomalous temps.

        The below-average temps you speak of are further inland.

      • You have no idea what you are talking about.

        St. Louis is six degrees below normal this month. It will be one of their coldest month of March on record

  3. Andy DC says:

    Stations in New England are approaching at least top 5 snowiest winter on record. The western suburbs of Boston have already had two 20″ snowstorms and are over a foot from the present storm with snow still in progress.
