Winter '17 / '18 - 'Season-total' Snowfall Forecast Contest: Month of MAX Snowfall

BOS Red Sox Opening Day
14-APR-53
Forecast stations observing their MAX monthly snowfall during Winter '17 / '18 in ...
DEC - 0
JAN - 7 (CAR ... PVD ... ACY ... SBY ... RIC ... ORF ... RDU)
FEB - 0
MAR - 18 (all the rest)

Leaving aside for the moment the fact FEB has 28 days and all other snow-season months have 31 ... 72% of our forecast stations observed their highest monthly snowfall total in MAR -- yes MAR -- this season.

Climo finds most of the contest/s forecast stations (14) observe their MAX monthly snowfall in JAN.  MAX monthly snowfall happens in FEB at 10 of the remaining 11 stations with only BDL having its greatest monthly climo snowfall in DEC.

No station/s monthly snowfall climo reached its maxim in MAR which makes the winter '17 / '18 all the more remarkable.
