Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Update

It’s been over two weeks since we took a look at the latest snow cover map for the Northern Hemisphere.  Here are the two images we’ve reviewed thus far, plus the most recent image:

The most noticeable increase in snow cover is probably seen in Alaska and northwest Canada as well as western Russia.  I looked through some images from previous years, but it’s hard to gauge if the current snow cover is above or below normal.  One thing is for sure – snow cover is on the increase in the Northern Hemisphere and it’s just a matter of time until the flakes begin flying with regularity south of 60N latitude.

    I haven’t done a great job of keeping up on this (http://cloudyandcool.com/2009/08/17/cold-in-the-northeast-this-winter/), so thanks for the update.

    I’ll link to it in my blog.
