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.
