This winter, many major cities have received significantly less snow than was projected. One of the most dramatic examples is Baltimore, where it was expected to snow 16.5 inches in February but only snowed 0.2 inches. The cities are getting plenty of precipitation but it is too warm to snow.

While there are a few exceptions, such as Buffalo, this data shows the trending decline in temperature, specifically in the northeast. The northeast is one of the fastest warming regions. While the northeast has been lower than normal, many other regions have exceeded estimates such as the midwest and even southwest.
