This whole winter was crazy mild for Northeast Ohio. The average highs are usually somewhere in the 20s or 30s from November through February and we get a LOT of lake effect snow--we're talking an average of 60.4 inches during the winter. This winter we had many days in the 40s and even quite a few in the 50s and 60s. I can really only recall a handful of times where it snowed enough to accumulate, but if I had to guess I'm thinking we only got a total of maybe 15-20 inches this year?
Suffice to say, El Niño has been kind to us.
