Winter was amazing out your way, if I saw 3 storms in a week and sub zero temps here it would be an A+ easyI will give it a B. My reasoning is because we had great teleconnections early on but the cold was overseas. This winter could have been unreal cold with a few tweaks and shifts. Three winter storms within a week isnt bad for my area. Coldest was -2 below zero.
Nah one storm down here makes or breaks a winter tbh, and sub-zero temps have only happened a couple times in the past century & change. Consistency should be a consideration but extremes are arguably way more important imo. A winter w/ one 1-2 foot snowstorm and sub-zero temps for a couple days is gonna be more impactful & memorable than one like this year that was consistently seasonable w/ only a few nickel/dime events.One week doesn't make a winter though. Need it to be consistently cold and snowy.
Haha if this doesn't sum up winter in the south I don't know what does. 12 days of snow to almost get to an inch.Overall, a D+.
Positives: snow on Christmas, no prolonged torches until end of Feb, always something to track, plenty of chances to score
Negatives: cold rain, cool rain, all kinds of rain. just too many fails, so many awesome setups that somehow went to poop. less than an inch season total.
You should have posted the wonderful ice sleet event we got also. Three in a weekI'll give this Winter an A. We had close to a foot of snow in two storms in a two day window, A record of 10 days straight below freezing, and temperatures below 0° in parts of the Memphis metro area. All this after a nasty Ice storm on Feb 11, 2021.
