The good:
-Blizzard with the highest one storm total I ever saw.
-Snow cover for nearly one month straight after the blizzard. Replenished by the smaller Feb. events.
-Surpassed seasonal average with just the handful of events we had.

The meh:
-Warm winter overall (I'm ok with this personally, although it did cause our few snow accumulations to get beat down fairly easily)
-Only a few smaller events....would have liked a 2-3 more

The ugly:
-No snow until late January. Snowless December FTL.
-Some major rain events with flash flooding

OVERALL GRADE as of now: B
(if we can grab a 2-6 inch event late next week I'd bumped it up to a B+)

December: A (snowless and warm)

January, weeks 1-3: B+ (colder, but nearly snowless) 

January 22-23: F- (blizzard, with an average year's worth of snow in 30 hours)

January, remainder: B (nearly snowless, warmup quickly melted snow cover) 

February: B- (below-average snowfall, some warm days)

 

If the blizzard hadn't happened, it would've been a B+/A- winter thus far.

Can't give it more than a C+ only reason for + is the blizzard with temps like this and the fact we will finish with about 1/2 the normal amount of sub freezing lows - incredibly warm winter

Nov +5.5 / Dec +14.0 / Jan +1.1 and Feb +2.8

I'm the one vote for an A. Arguably my favorite winter ever.

 

*Top 5 warmest on record, including 70+ at Christmas and numerous 60's.

*One big snowstorm and a small number of PITA events that didn't impact much.

*No real sustained lock/blocked cold. It got cold a few times but nothing too terrible.

 

All in all, a great winter in my book. At least I know what winter in Raleigh (minus the 25" snowstorms) is like.
