Description :
The goal of this study was to develop a 50-yr statistical climatology of snowfall occurences using data from a dense network of cooperative station observations covering northwest and central Missouri, and these records were provided by the Missouri Climate Center. This included a study of the long-term trends and interannual variability in snowfall occurence as related to sea surface temperature variations in the Pacific Ocean basin associated with the El Niño and Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the North Pacific Oscillation (NPO). These trends and variations were then related to 4 synoptic-scale flow regimes that produce these snowfalls in the Midwest.
