After a barrage of early-season storms, the snowpack across the Western United States is now well above average for mid-November.
Jackson Hole and the Tetons is where we’ll start.
The settled snow depth at the Rendezvous Bowl Plot stands at 41 inches (104 cm), with the average for the date being just 25 inches (63.5 cm).
Below are the settled snow depths relative to average at various elevations across the region — the chart courtesy of buckrail.com:
Note, these are the snow depths or the accumulated pack. The snow that actually fell is going to be much higher — and staying with Rendezvous Bowl, from Nov 9 through Nov 16, the Plot registered 60 inches (152.4 cm), beating the area’s average November snowfall (which is 59″) in just one week!
The region’s next storm is due to arrive on Wednesday, and while it will be coming in warmer than those during the first half of the month –with precipitation falling as rain or a rain-snow mix– precipitation will eventually transition to all-snow on Wednesday night, with the storm forecast to deliver another 10+ inches (25+ cm) in the Tetons.
Looking further ahead, a cool down will greet the weekend, with another active and snowy system on course to build in time for Thanksgiving:
These coming totals will only add to the well-above average snowpack registered across the Western United States this season.
As revealed in the SNOTEL map (shown below), regions up and down the mountain states, and elsewhere, are ALL enjoying truly jaw-dropping numbers:
In parts of Oregon, totals are hitting as much as 786% of normal.
The story is similar across Washington State.
While in Idaho and Montana, and elsewhere, the current Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) is comfortably above the 1981-2010 median.
Finally, note the 1500% in Texas (the key only goes >= 150%!).
These Western United States totals are adding to the above average snowpack observed across the Northern Hemisphere.
As revealed in the FMI map (shown below), the Total snow mass for the Northern Hemisphere (excluding the mountains) is approx. 300 Gigatons above the 1982-2012 average, and has been sitting there all season — an impossibility under the global warming theory… and yet here we are:
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
