Only a short time ago, we have informed about possible all-time record of the snowiest USA ever /https://mkweather.com/2021/02/16/70-4-of-the-usa-under-the-snow-the-snowiest-winter-ever-record-is-70-9-and-the-next-snowfall-is-expected// and from Tuesday to Wednesday, 16.-17. February 2021 it appears, that this record was broken!
We should to say, that 73% of the US territory (expect for Alaska) is currently under the snow, what is the most since modern statistics in 2003 began.
The deepest snow cover is reported from eastern Midwest, Great Lakes region, northern and western Northeast, Northwest and Rocky Mountains, but really untraditional snowstorm hit too New Mexico, Texas or Louisiana, including coastal areas of Gulf Coast.
From mountains are still reported deadly avalanches – death toll has risen to 24 for February 2021.
Moreover, many all-time or very old temeprature records was broken from Minnesota to Texas, and too in southern Canada and Northern Mexico /https://mkweather.com/2021/02/08/northern-canada-519c-southern-canada-489c-the-usa-400c-new-all-time-temperature-records/; https://mkweather.com/2021/02/17/extreme-frosts-in-mexico-monclova-620-masl-100c-all-time-record-2021/; https://mkweather.com/2021/02/17/extreme-frosts-in-mexico-monclova-620-masl-100c-all-time-record-2021//.
In North Dakota, -46,1°C / -51°C was observed /https://mkweather.com/2021/02/15/historic-winter-in-the-usa-51f-461c-in-bottineau-north-dakota-128-year-record-broken// or in Minnesota -45,6°C / -50°C was reached /https://mkweather.com/2021/02/14/ely-minnesota-the-usa-50f-456c-records-in-midwest-and-texas-expected//.
During the next days, additional snowfall is possible mainly in Northeast and in case, that snow melting will be relatively slow in the South and Southeast, “snowy 73% record” should be increased, yet.
Warmer period for the USA is prepared already in the next week, but in Canada and Great Lakes region, extreme winter should return very quickly in late February and early March 2021.
Then, extremely strong Spring tornado season is in the USA expected /Spring forecasts for continents will be updated on Mkweather until the end of February 2021/.
