It has been a pretty meager season so far for much of the North (Great Lakes snow belts aside) with double digit snow deficits in nearly every location in the Upper Midwest and much of the Rockies. Obviously that may change for some in the coming days, but that aside it has been a far different story in the south. In fact, there are locations south of the Mason Dixon line that have actually seen more snow than the metro.
Metro season total is now more than a foot, but parts of Georgia (even the north side of the Atlanta metro) have seen more snow than us. In fact, every single state in the U.S. with Florida as the only exception, has seen at least 6” of snow somewhere in the state so far this season. Parts of North Carolina have seen a foot, Alabama peaks at 11”, Mississippi & Louisiana are over 8”, and the Florida panhandle has peaked at 2”. Rather impressive!
Snow is looking more and more likely across the Upper Midwest going through the next couple of days, with some hefty totals possible, but still a little backwards nationwide so far this season.
