I was catching up on where had snow here:
and got to wondering what the global snow levels looked like. Now this map is the monthly map for October 2014, so doesn’t have the latest November snow in it. See link here:
Notice that the dark blue squares are +75% anomaly compared to 1981-2010 mean. Medium blue is “only” a +50%.
It looks to me like a lot of the Northern Hemisphere has a lot more than “normal” snow. “Global Warming” my galoshes…
Canada shows it in cm so you can get an idea about actual depth:
Some of those southern Asia snow excursions are big. Looks like 90 to 100 cm to me.
I think we can safely say it will be a cold snowy winter, but it looks a bit worse on the Asian side then here in North America.
