Some interesting info:
Through November 18, only 3.3 inches of snow has been recorded so far this Autumn at the National Weather Service office located in Negaunee Township. This is 13.6 inches below normal, and it ranks as the 5th least snowy start to the snow season so far. If less than 0.5 inches of snow is recorded through November 22, then this autumn will rank as the least snowy start to the snow season.
Through November 18, the rankings for least snow recorded are:
1. Trace 1994
2. 0.8 inches 1970
3. 2.0 inches 1971
4. 2.4 inches 1984
5. 3.3 inches 2009
6. 3.7 inches 2004
Weather records for the National Weather Service office located in Negaunee Township date back to 1961.

I wouldn't worry about it. Pre-Dec snow means jack you know what. 3.5 months of good snow then back to sunburns. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

Agree with nickdub, last year I was at my place in the Northwest corner of the lower looking at more than a foot of snow a couple of days before Thanskgiving knowing I could not ride since the trails were not open. The weather can change overnight in our state. But looking at the serious snow they are getting in Washington State right now is tough to bear!

This is one record that I didn't want to see broken.

While I will admit it is starting to get me nervous, I do know it can change almost instantly and any snow prior to Thanksgiving generally doesn't last. That said, hopefully we are just digging ourselves a hole and one of these days the temps will stop going over 32 during the day and then mother nature can catchup on the averages. http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif
November snow's are not indicative to a winter pattern. Though it is nice to see them begin, a majority of it is wasted due to warmer ground temps anyway. Meteorological "Winter" does not begin until Dec 1st & according to the calander, winter does not begin until Dec 21st. I have seen many a winter begin later, some were well into the last part of December before we have had substantial snowfalls begin. Not to panic, it will eventually even itself out, keep the faith.-Mezz
