Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Greatest In Over 40 Years

A big surge of snow in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere in the last half of January resulted in January being the snowiest for the northern hemisphere since satellite records began in 1966. Extensive snow cover in mid to late winter, something lacking in most recent years, often means colder than normal temperatures for late winter and a delayed spring. Eastern North Carolina has not experienced significant snowfall in over three years. Temperatures have remained above normal so far this winter but colder conditions are likely over the next week to 10 days.
