Yes, shocking, we know. A report and comparative maps from this season and last confirm the obvious.
It’s official: This winter was a bad snow year. Not that we really needed NASA to tell us this, but alas, a report comparing last year’s plentiful powder with this winter’s sad snowfall amounts blames the mild winter on a La Niña pattern that pushed the precipitation northward. That was compounded by something called an Arctic Oscillation, a strong one in this case, that kept all that cold air circling the North Pole rather than drifting down to more southerly latitudes.
