Though this was a La Nina winter, which usually results in a warm and wet season, the Arctic Oscillation took control of our weather and made most of the season cold and dry instead. Despite the dry conditions, we were cold enough that most of the percipitation that did fall fell as snow, resulting in a snowier than normal winter.
Wamer conditions finally arrived for the final two weeks of the season, along with a couple rounds of severe weather and several tornadoes.
