Winter '07 / '08 - What Is It About Week One?


Is there something special about the first week in December or is it merely a case of undue importance being placed on more recent events that makes it seem that way?

Questions about Week One/s seemingly 'stormy nature' have been raised b/c GooFuS LR solutions...as they/re wont to do now that winter grand entrance is waiting in the wings...have again begun dangling shiny objects before our eyes.

The first week of DEC has been a good period for snow storms in the NE the past half-decade. The table shows the number of contest stations reporting snow by year and day of week.

The only other period since 1948 where the first week of DEC was that active - defined as number of stations affected - was between 1954 and 1958.

CAR and BGM have the best chance (20 - 30%) of a measurable snowfall on any day during Week One. BGR has a 20% probability on three of the seven days.
