Winter '16 / '17 - 18th Annual 'Regular Season' Snowfall Forecast Contest: The End is Nigh

Central Park ... NYC
19-FEB-41
Despite our longing for one more contest-worthy snow storm ... the long wave pattern shows little inclination to alter its ridiculously stubborn regime of processing 'all' SFC LOWs through the Great Lakes region.

Sure hasn/t been a great season for nor'easters in general or nor'easters climbing the coast from low latitudes specifically.

Most seasons ... it/s all said and done by early MAR.
Average date of the last 4" or greater snowfall:
CAR 23-MAR
BGR 15-MAR
PWM 08-MAR
ORH 07-MAR
BTV 06-MAR
CON 06-MAR
ALB 06-MAR
BGM 06-MAR
BOS 25-FEB
BDL 24-FEB

However ... there are exceptions.
Latest date of the last 4" or greater snowfall:
CAR 16-MAY
PWM 11-MAY
CON 10-MAY
ALB 10-MAY
ORH 09-MAY
BGR 24-APR
BTV 23-APR
BGM 22-APR
BDL 21-APR
BOS 10-APR

The end of the Winter '16 / '17 snowfall forecasting season appears nigh.
All else equal ... the season will close on SAT ... 15-APR.
