Well folks, just like Thanksgiving 2013 here in State College, Pennsylvania, Christmas Day 2013 set the record (by far) for the coldest December 25th since I began blogging in 2005.
Like last year, it snowed here on the day before and day after Christmas, but this year Penn State recorded 0.4" on December 25th, the first time in my records* (even though this was the 5th December with more than 10 inches of snow in the month). No snow was reported on the ground, however, so it was not officially a White Christmas (leaving 2005 with that honor).
Across the country, it was a fairly benign day. The two graphics below are animated versions of our White Christmas forecast, and our Christmas Day forecast.
*The new "day" starts at 7 PM at Penn State meteorology. Otherwise, we would have had several inches on Dec. 25 in 2010 and 2012.
The mid-Atlantic had never seen a March morning as cold as this one... the Great Lakes ice and U.S. snow cover set records, and more.
Elliot Abrams said: "Rather than centering near the I-80 to I-70 corridor, the snow was centered on the I-70 to I-64 corridors." So what he's saying is...
It's been a heck of a season, but winter is not over yet. Historic cold and snow is coming once again.
I was lucky enough again this year to have AccuWeather send me to Social Media Week in New York City and even luckier to get these awesome photos.
I'd like to present our latest promo video which explains what AccuWeather, the company, does.
Six states got socked with around two feet of snow -- or more, after the Pre-Valentine's Day Blizzard of 2014 was through.
