So, my prediction was for snow from November to April. The California storms gave us a milder winter, as all the cold spilled onto Siberia. Everybody was dancing!
This shows the movement of the cold, and the temperature maps shows what it is.
All our rain could have been snow. However, we have a few more attacks of the Cold Blobs coming down on us. One of them is sure to have it's boundard right over Toronto. We have a very good chance of a big late storm.
I see Spring as officially here when all this cold blob action stops. Spring is defined by ocean breezes from the Pacific coming right over us. Dry, cool, and sunny.
