Mild in the west, cold in the east except for Maine where temperatures have been about average, and a storm with 40 degrees LOWS (25 degrees above average) and a few inches of rain coming to wipe out all snow cover and reverse the ground freezing (even if only temporary).
I'm fine with getting below-average snow as long as temperatures are cold enough where my snow doesn't melt until spring, but in the past couple of years it seems like everytime a storm comes, it sucks in a ton of warm air and brings rain / melting conditions rather than cold. What gives?
I'll likely have a green ground again by Tuesday, so will any more snow likely come by Christmas? Forecast looks cold but dry.
