Old wine in new bottles. For years, the ski industry has run a "Keep Winter Cool" campaign doing exactly the same: urging skiers and snowboarders to push for stricter carbon regulations to preserve winter snows.

Western Washington, known for lots of precipitation in the form of rain & snow, still has had increasing percentages of low-snow years. Specially on some of our lower skiing sites, like Snoqualmie Pass, snow can accumulate & set-up skiing opportunities very quickly. But warm rain gully-washer fronts can just as readily wash all the snow away, even in the deep winter month of January.

Not true they all have snow making machine. They just have to pump of the volume.

Remember the recent "bring your own snow" Winter Olympics in Vancouver and Whistler? We'll see more of that. Lots more.

Well toss out those snow making machines. Record snow fall predicted for the Northern State today. Gee must be global cooling again.

High Plains Region:(Information provided by the High Plains Regional Climate Center)
ĽNovember 2012 was warm and dry across the majority of the High Plains Region. Below normal temperatures were confined to northern North Dakota where temperature departures ranged from 2.0-4.0 degrees F (1.1-2.2 degrees C) below normal. However, most locations in the Region had average temperatures at least 2.0 degrees F (1.1 degrees C) above normal. The largest departures occurred in southern Wyoming where a large area had average temperatures which were 6.0-10.0 degrees F (3.3-5.6 degrees C) above normal. The warmth caused many locations in that area to rank in the top 10 warmest Novembers on record. Laramie, Wyoming had its 3rd warmest November on record with an average temperature of 38.0 degrees F (3.3 degrees C) which was 8.7 degrees F (4.8 degrees C) above normal. The record of 40.6 degrees F (4.8 degrees C) was set in 1949 (period of record 1948-2012). Temperatures for the year continued to be among the warmest on record for locations in each state of the Region. For instance, Omaha, Nebraska had its warmest January-November on record with an average temperature of 58.4 degrees F (14.7 degrees C). The old record of 57.9 degrees F (14.4 degrees C) was set in 1934 (period of record 1871-2012). Topeka, Kansas also had its warmest January-November with an average temperature of 62.1 degrees F (16.7 degrees C). This easily beat the old record of 61.0 degrees F (16.1 degrees C), which was also set in 1934 (period of record 1887-2012).
