Snow finally blankets the U.S. coast to coast

- It’s been a weird season so far with one of the warmest falls on record followed by an equally strange December and early January.  Record snow fell in parts of the southern Plains and southern Rockies, but hardly a flake up and down the East Coast.  That is until now of course.  Record snows from West Virginia to New York now have a blanket of snow from coast to coast.  Nearly 60% of the country has snow on the ground which is right where it should be for the last week of January…

As for Minnesota… all of us have snow, but the total pack isn’t exactly what it typically is with much of northern Minnesota sub-par on the snow front.  The good news, a few inches looks likely for some by the time Tuesday rolls in.

Nationwide, February and early March is usually when snow pack and lake ice are at their peak just before the spring thaw arrives as we head into April.
