This blog is for cities that have not had more than 5 inches of snow for the entire winter. Here in Richmond...0" has fallen so far. I hope we get some soon. This is how it seems here...

So Far 6.0 inches of snow has fallen in Richmond, VA.

A winter storm is either too far west or too far east or too far south or too far north or too far north-east or too far north-west or too far south-east or too far south-west to produce heavy snow here in Richmond over the past 4 years.

It's impossible for it to snow in Richmond more than a dusting at a time.

Not quite on the coast but I'm sitting right at 5 inches for the year. Which is actually an improvment for me since I've had less than that total in 3 of the last 4 winters. I should normally get 15-20 inches at my elevation and location.

First Frost: October 4th.

First Freeze: October 4th

First accumulating snowfall: November 5th 1/2 inch, November 6th 1/2 inch.

Here In Charlottesville Va we had a dusting back in November and today we had more sleet than snow. I'll say we got less than a 1/4 inch. What a waste of a snow day! sad.gif

I'm there, although we have had some, so I feel even worse for ya'll. Our biggest "storm" was the two inches we got last Monday due to that freak snow burst, and our season total is around 3.25" give or take.

I'm hoping things improve in February, but we've had good looking patterns before and they never materialized, so I'm doubting we get any significant change in the current trends. Chances are better next season, when ideally La Nina will not be a factor. A weak El Nino would actually do wonders for us, at this point.

I think officially at the airport they have an Inch so far on the year, and that was from the past storm that went through and dumped 6 inches plus on central NC. I just happend to get a Trace out of that. I did however get an inch at the end of November, but nothing more than a dusting since then. I guess I'll be happy with my inch.
