It has snowed in all 50 States this Fall before Astronomical Winter begins in 8 days. The total duration of winter 2017 is 89 days, 00 hours, and 47 minutes. Some areas in the south have seen as much snow, if not more than areas in the Great Basin. Snow all across the United States this fall is relatively surprising considering much of the area has experienced persistent above average temperatures and below average precipitation.
The extended forecast for the northern half of the country is calling for a strong start to winter. This area is expected to experience above average precipitation and below average temperatures. Sadly, the PNW and West Coast are expected to experience below average precipitation. Along with that, CA is also expected to experience above average temperatures.
