  1. I had about 3 inches here, bringing me to a total of 50 inches of snow this season.
  2. Yep that's northeast Pa weather , elevation and being outside the cities makes a big difference up here. We average 20 to 25 inches more snow annually then AVP area.
  3. I work in Wilkes Barre....long ride everyday and they are around 600 ft. elevation. and I would leave my house in the morning and we have had 2 or 3 inches of snow and they were raining! I notice by my car temperature it is almost always 5 degrees are more warmer down there. It seems like the cities are really warming up for my co-workers who live in the burbs get a lot more snow than wilkes also.
  4. Yes unfortunately for southeastern Pa they have pretty good. Not many boards focus on northeastern Pa. The AVP area has not done well, for we have over twice as much snow as them...I work down there and have noticed the difference especially when I get off of the Casey Hwy and get on 81 south.
  5. I have gotten a bit of snow in Jan and Feb well over 30 inches for both months combined. I would of course liked more.!
  6. Sorry I have been busy with work. I live a few mile south of Pleasant Mount Pa at around 1300 feet elevation/+
  7. March is still winter up here. When someone says above normal they are basing it on 1981-2010 averages which are much too cold for today's climate. If you add about 1.5- 2 degrees above that that will be more appropriate for current times.
  8. I'm speaking for my area we've had almost normal snowfall and even though it's a few degrees above normal it has felt like winter. Down your way a different story. It takes more than looking at models by themselves.
  9. These models have been wrong all along. I believe the northern especially interior sections do well snow wise this month, the coastal sections well that's a different story.
  10. In my opinion 30 year averages and also analogs before 1990 are useless, we seem to be warming 1 degree every 12 - 15 years! We need to add 1.5 - 2 degrees above the 1981-2010 averages to really define normal especially during the winter and most of the summer months.
  11. 97-98 winter was a strong el-nino but upstate Pa and NY state had snowfall which was near average for the season while Philly had less than an inch.
  12. I guess all the models haven't been too good, especially after 10 days. I think the big cities and those say south of Scranton have not done well to say the least when it comes to snow, while above average temps may not hurt as much further up north but especially Philly and NYC it really has
  13. You guys are lucky you have Mount Holly for your NWs while we have Binghamton for our NWS and despite Mitch they still are the worst!
  14. Getting any month below the 1981-2010 averages is getting really hard. I think if we are anywhere below 2 above those averages that would be considered below normal for today's climate. especially in the east.
