Up north on the other hand, there has been a snow drought. In Buffalo, N.Y., there has been barely over 4 inches of snow this month, and in Burlington, Vt., there has been less than 3 inches. Now read this. In Caribou, Maine, one of the snowiest low elevations in the East, February snowfall is under 5 inches.
A blocking pattern has kept storms on a southern route through the eastern part of the United States, thus there has been excessive snowfall in the mid-Atlantic region but hardly anything in the north.
