  1. if you don't like cold or snow except for Christmas than 1912-13 is the winter for you...only 15" fell for the season and 11 of those " fell Christmas eve... Christmas night and the next day got numerous snowstorms...2010, 1969, 1947 to name a few of those years...dates with the most heavy December snows are the 19th and 26th...
  2. not many years had a snowstorm in full force Christmas morning...there are some for Christmas afternoon and night like 2002 and 1976...1966 came the closest to having snow Christmas morning...there was a 7" storm ending 4am Christmas morning...Newark in 1960 had a little snow Christmas eve on top of a leftover 2" from previous storms...1961 had a 10 inch storm that ended around midnight Christmas eve...1962 had 2" on the ground from previous storms Christmas morning and got a little snow Christmas afternoon...1963 had six inches on the ground Christmas morning...there was a four hour period of snow Christmas eve evening that whitened the leftover snow from the 23rd...from 1959 to 1963 Newark had at least 2" of snow on the ground Christmas morning...the streak ended when the 3" of snow that fell on the 20th in 1964 melted Christmas eve before a warm Christmas day...70 around Newark...60 in Central Park...
  3. are we at the end of a snowy cycle or will it continue into the future?...The lousiest streak of bad winters came after a good streak of snowy winters...The first six winters I was alive for 1949-50 to 1954-55 had less than 20" per year...the next winter 1955-56 ended the streak at the last minute...then we were in a generally snowy period until the early 1970's...from the 1969-70 winter to the 1976-77 there were no major storms...only three winters had major storms over 10" in NYC until March 1993...since then major storms and snowy winters are winning over the bad ones like 2001-02 and 2011-12...
  4. I was 13 when the 62-63 winter started...I was just getting started being a weather observer and weather history buff...December 1962 started with record warmth on the first after a cold November...NYC already saw snow falling in October and November...after the first week of December it became very cold...a storm on the 21st-22nd laid down 3" of snow that ended as rain...Christmas day saw light snow that ended as rain that evening...brutal arctic air came at the end of the month...January and February had another arctic blast...February having one that was below zero...the snowstorm chances came in late January and the second half of February...January's storm was a 4-6" event that ended as rain...February's was a rain and wet snow event with 2-3" of slush...March 1st had another 2" that changed to rain...March became benign after that and April started with record warmth...that winter was a la nina before the oni scale was updated recently...now it shows a neutral negative...
  5. 1962-63 was colder than average from late July to late March...NYC did poorly in the snow department but Washington DC almost doubled their average snowfall and got 5" more than NYC that winter...
  6. some great winters around the lowest sunspot year...there have been great winter around the highest sunspot year like in 1957-58...200-01 also... 1835-36...year of the big snow... 1856-57...year of the cold snowstorm... 1866-67...many big snowstorms... 1876-77...coldest December with a blizzard in early January... 1887-88...blizzard of 1888... 1898-99...56" of snow...blizzard.in Feb... 1913-14...very cold snowy February into March...big March storm... 1922-23...60" of snow... 1933-34...52" of snow with the coldest temp on record... 1944-45...30" of snow...very cold January... 1955-56...33" of snow...cold December...snowy March... 1966-67...51" of snow...cold snowy February and March... 1977-78...51" of snow...two major storms and very cold... 1986-87...23" of snow but more south of NYC... 1995-96...75" of snow...January blizzard... 2009-10...51" of snow...

  9. the only years that were el nino that went neutral and back to el nino before the next winter are...1958-59...1969-70...1977-78...two other years went from el nino to neutral to start the next winter but became el nino again the second half of that winter...those years are 1952-53 and 1992-93...the year 2003 went neutral negative just after the 2003 winter ended but rose to just under el nino territory for the winter of 2003-04...this year enso went just slightly negative for a while but rose to +0.5 the last two weeks on the oni scale...whether or not it becomes another el nino is still uncertain...what this means for next winter is also uncertain at this point...the first three analogs were very cold...the next two not so cold and the last cold again...
  10. my top two analogs averaged close to normal temperatures but slightly above normal snowfall with big storms in Dec and Mar...rain/snow/both?...one storm 10-15"...
  11. I like 1959-60 and 1992-93 as my top analogs as of now...Both had major March storms...
  12. if this were January one day would be 66 degrees and sunny and the next day 26 and snowing...
  13. the other years with a 90 degree temp in October had mixed results winters...89 in 1922... 1922-23...cold snowy winter... 1927-28...dud winter.. 1938-39...39" of snow including a 9" storm in November... 1939-40...26" of snow in a very cold winter including snow in April... 1941-42...dud winter but January and Feb. were cold...
  14. 95 imby today...as out of season as the snowstorm in Oct. 2011...
