A Snowless October For Much of Nation

November 12, 2010; 10:27 AM ET

October was much less snowy than it should have been in the Continental United States. Here's a map I made of normal October snowfall (colors) vs. October 2010 snowfall, as reported by the official climate stations in AccuWeather's database. As you can see, the coverage of non-zero reports is much smaller than it should have been.

Denver had no snow, something that hasn't happened in 88.5% of previous years of record. Flakes haven't been seen at all in most of the country. I'm not sure how much snow Montreal, Quebec, Canada normally has by now but I bet it's a lot more than the 1.2" they got at the end of October.

    Is this Jupiter's "red spot?" No, but it might be the most intense storm on Earth this year, and perhaps in recorded history for the Bering Strait and Alaska.
