I have been an avid buff since the Blizzard of 1969 dumped 25 inches of snow on us near Binghamton, NY. I was 8 years of age at the time, and my interest in weather has not abated since!

I have been keeping a song chart of personal favorites for nearly 42 years (since I was 13). I wanted to rank various songs I liked but were not big hits. Very few of these songs have a snowball's chance of making the Billboard Hot 100. This part 1, covering songs 100 to 76. A lot of these were carryovers from 2015 (and songs from late 2016/early 2017) because I did not listen to too many new songs during the first few months of 2016.

100 FLIPSIDE-NORAH JONES
a well-done retro-jazz-sounding tune with socially conscious lyrics
99 CAROLINA IN MY MIND (LIVE)-GREG NEFF
A local talent, this song charted because I heard him perform this James Taylor classic several times
98 DIAMONDS IN THE DUST-STEEP CANYON RANGERS
With superb banjo work, this was one of several songs from their 2015 Radio CD that charted in 2016.
97 TOO LATE-VAN MORRISON
With a classic Morrison sound, this sounded like his early-'70s FM rock heyday.
96 (FOLLOW YOUR HEART) (LIVE ON ETOWN)-KATIE HERZOG
a roots-rock sound—heard on the NPR live show one Saturday in June
95 GONE BEFORE YOU MET ME-ALAN JACKSON
A track from his 2015 Angels and Alcohol CD, this had an upbeat feel.
94 SING IT LOUDER-GARY BARLOW
A socially conscious folk tune that had good lyrics but musically was a bit too maudlin
93 BETTER MAN-LITTLE BIG TOWN C&W
A mature, sincere, winter-sounding country ballad that was, surprisingly, penned by plastic pop star Taylor Swift
92 EVERYTHING'S CHANGED-PATTY GRIFFIN
A mesmerizing folk strummer
91 BAD PEOPLE (LIVE ON ETOWN)-ANNA AND ELIZABETH
This roots-rock tune had a strong hook and was heard in a September show
90 CALIFORNIA-ROBERT ELLIS
A jazz-tinged ballad that had an early summer sound
89 HALLELUJAH-PENTATONIX AC
Their cover of the Leonard Cohen classic was released shortly before Cohen passed away.
88 LOVE IN THE DARK-ADELE
A melancholy ballad an an album cut from 25
87 NO-MEGHAN TRAINOR
A fairly catchy tune that was the first single from her sophomore album
86 I WON’T GO BACK-STEVE MARTIN/EDIE BRICKELL
An Americana song I first heard in late 2015
85 SEE YOU ON THE WAY DOWN-RENEE WAHL
A tune with a strong hook and an autumnal feel
84 ALL MY PEOPLE-KINDRED AND THE FAMILY SOUL
A soulful recording with a retro, 1970s sound
83 JOANNE-LADY GAGA
An acoustic ballad that nevertheless has a worldly-wise sound
82 THE THREE OF ME-WILLIAM BELL
A soulful tune that had a late-1960s R&B sound
81 WHEN GOD PAINTS-ALAN JACKSON C&W
A country ballad that would have been a big hit in his 1990s heyday
80 (WALK THROUGH WALLS) (LIVE ON ETOWN)-KATIE HERZOG
A tune with a soulful delivery and a melodic hook
79 RIDE THE TRAIN-THE Q-BACKS
A bouncy song with a 1950s rock vibe
78 WRECK YOU-LORI MCKENNA
A country-blues ballad with a Sunday night, autumnal sound—the lyrics were about codependency and a dysfunctional relationship.
77 WHEN YOU'RE GONE-AMANDA SHIRE
An Americana song with a strong hook
76 CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER-JILL SCOTT
A soulful, old-school R&B sound

I decided to open a thread for the late-month warm spell instead of having people post in the long-range fall thread. Today's high in Binghamton was 78 degrees, about 14 above average. Tomorrow's record high here is merely 79 degrees (the first sub-80 record high since mid-April). NWS is predicting a high of 77 for tomorrow (though they predicted a mere 75 for today). I am curious as to whether we make it tomorrow. I hope that Portland, ME made it to their record of 80 today.

5 Jan 2014
March began on a blah note, with cloudy, cold, uneventful weather during the first week. We did have two inches of snow on the morning of March 8, which was a pleasant surprise because they had predicted less than one inch. After that came a warmup, with temperatures reaching the upper 40s on the 9th and the mid-50s the next day. Unfortunately, it did not last because clouds increased on the 11th, leading to an all-day moderate rain on the 12th. The rain was heavy for a few hours around midday. After that came a long dry spell, with light snow all we had for a while. The 13th saw an exciting snow squall as a cold front went through. March 18 saw a quick three inches of snow accumulate--during the day at that. It was quite a contrast to the 74-degree high of March 18, 2012! The next day saw some fascinating conditions: a quick inch of snow early in the morning, followed by bright sun and 39-degree temperatures at midday, melting most of our existing snow. An hour later, we were getting sleeted on. Then came a half hour of bright sun, followed by another spate of snow and sleet. After that came a series of cloudy, cold, dry days. Easter weekend saw ordinary conditions--Easter itself saw spotty light rain. March ended up as the driest month of the year and the only month with less than two inches of precipitation. It was also our coldest March in 8 years.

April started out cold, with a one-inch snow squall the morning of the second. Apr. 2 saw our first record low temperature of the year, at 19 degrees. It was also our first sub-20 day in April since 2007. The air was slow to warm up after that, but the sun was pleasant to look at. I was in Wilkes Barre, PA for a four-day period, and it was chilly and dry during my four-day stay there. April 7 saw our first truly springlike day since March 10, with the temperature reaching the low 60s. We had two more pleasant days before the rain and chill returned by midweek. Milder air returned the following week for a bit, followed by two cloudy days, then the most dramatic weather of the month, on the 19th. The temperature that afternoon reached the upper 60s before a strong cold front set off an exciting squall line, dumping a quick three quarters of an inch of rain, along with very strong wind gusts. At first, I thought it was a tornado, but fortunately, none materialized. The rest of the month was generally seasonable to mild, with my 52nd b-day seeing a high of 68 degrees. We did not reach 70 officially in either March or April, the first time that had occurred since 1980. Because of the cold start, it was our coolest April in six years.
