What is weird is I believe this winter was a Moderate La Nina. I would love to see what type of pattern produced this pattern.
How can you tell?
Revived this old topic since the winter of 1917-18 has to be one of the coldest, snowiest winters ever in this part of the country. I found a few more record digging around in the Utah State database. Osceola Arkansas, about 35 miles N of Memphis, recorded almost 45 inches of snow in a 6 week period. At one point with temps below zero, this station recorded nearly 2 feet of snow on the ground. Snow was on the ground for nearly 30 days...just unheard of in these parts.
Good God. I would say it would be awesome if we could swing that again in our lifetimes, but I can only imagine the 3rd world country Memphis and surrounding areas would become if we had that much snow for that long!
While we are nearing mid-winter and snow starved at this point (licking our chops for some Feb cold), I happened upon some records from the winter of 1917-1918. This winter must have been the snowlovers dream. Snow upon snow, with only a slight reprieve from what I can tell.
