The latest CoCoRaHS blog summarizes the 2016-2017 winter season that just ended as “the winter that mostly wasn’t.” If you live anywhere in the eastern half of the country, your temperature this season was well above normal, and even quite a bit of the western US with the exception of the Pacific Northwest was above normal. The season ended with very mild temperatures and a severe weather outbreak in the central US that looked more spring-like than winter-like, when severe weather is usually confined to the South.

And don’t forget that March is “March Madness” for CoCoRaHS! This month offers a competition between states to see who can recruit the most new observers for their network. There are still large areas of the Southeast that have few or no observers, and it would be great to add some to the list. I will be posting more about this later in the month but you can read about it at http://www.cocorahs.org/Content.aspx?page=Marchmadness17.
