It's kind of a shame we can't get a favorable pattern this year in late Feb-early Mar. Our snowfall climo drops off but the proportion of big dogs goes up substantially.

Sigh.

I know that this virus has been terrible news, but I have some things that I hope to keep all of you going. Over the past few weeks, I have been learning how to program with Python for weather-related purposes. Yesterday I was playing around with some source code and was able to modify it enough to plot snow maps from previous winter storms from the NOHRSC database.

The original source code was made by Tomer burg. He created most of the map, all I did was change the map view and style as well as the color pallet and other small features. I debated between making a thread or posting the maps in here and I decided to add the maps in here because of the lack of maps I have. I'm experimenting with some other maps and I could always make a thread when I'm ready.

I will post several maps in different individual posts. If there is a snow map that I didn't post please don't hesitate to PM me. These maps take very little time to load and it only involves changing a date. Note that the data only goes back to 2009.

Heres the First Map
