The Weather Prediction Center released a couple of graphics Wednesday showing just how widespread snowfall was for the month of February 2021. In the first image, below, the snowfall analysis for the month of February was truly impressive. Nearly every state was touched by at least some new snowfall accumulation. Of course, note how far south the snow accumulations were, plus how many inches fell!  Next, the image below shows the departure from average for snowfall during February 2021. Areas of blue and green represent an above-average snowfall. Areas of interest, of course, were the Deep South snowy locations and also the Interstate 95 corridor near the New York City and Philadelphia area. Brown-shaded areas were below average. Much of the February snowfall has melted away as the temperature pattern has warmed considerably for the start of March. These new images remind us how unprecedented the snow was in an historic February for winter weather here in the United States. All images courtesy NOAA's Weather Prediction Center
