It is no wonder it is warm right now.

Winter just started. Posts like these suck and offer nothing of substance.

I hope everyone had a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Santa sure delivered some warm weather up north
It was in the 50's/60's - thought I was home here in Texas!!!

We could use some rain though -

The meteorological winter is Dec-Jan-Feb. We are almost 1/3 of the way through it. The annual minimums for IAH bottom out from January 3rd - January 24th (mean is 43F - 63F).

We will begin those lowest averages in a week from now. Average temps begin to warm again on January 25th.

I’m aware and your post doesn’t address my sentiments. I’m addition, our most active winter weather timeframe (actual events) is from late January through the 3rd week of February.

I’ve lived here over 30 years and all 3 accumulating snow events for me happened in December. I’ve had zero luck those other months.

We are talking winter weather, not just snow. I had accumulating snow 2 Januarys ago. Can’t remember if it was 2013-2014 or the following winter but we had something like 7 events that Winter... mixed bag of stuff, but still.

You live in a bad area for snow, period. I’d bet my chances are a lot higher (albeit not great).
