Let us help you AFTER the storm
You just finished plowing for the day. You’re tired, but you flick on the news anyway to see the snowfall totals that were reported. Well to your surprise, the news said 8 inches fell, you measured 9 inches, but a guy on Facebook said he had 10 inches all in the same town! What gives?
Major Winter Storm this Weekend!

What is the Polar Vortex?
In recent years, many media outlets have used the word “polar vortex” to explain arctic cold outbreaks, leaving most believing the phenomenon is a new meteorological discovery. However, this term has actually been used in the weather world for decades, first discussed in the 1950s. Although many have hyped up the vortex... insisting it will "hit" the United States at dates in the future, the polar vortex doesn't really "hit" a location, like say, a hurricane's eye wall does.
A Look Back at the Weather of 2018
December 2018: Wet, but not very Snowy

December 2018: More Wet than White
It was a relatively warm December despite it being the first meteorological month of winter. Of course, this meant more days warming into the 40s and 50s than the 30s. And while it was not a record breaker in that department, December certainly helped solidify 2018 as one of the wettest years, and in some spots the wettest year on record!

October 2018 Northeast Summary
For what is supposed to be the heart of fall, October presented quite a few twists and turns. For starters, summer continued to grapple with the region and even when the pattern finally flipped, rain seemed to persist every few days. Wintry weather was still on the back burner though, as only the interior parts of the Northeast received some of the white stuff. Let’s take a look at how the month panned out.
