Climate Central says North American snow cover is on the decline, and it is due in part to winter precipitation falling as rain rather than snow. They say their data comes from Rutgers University.
The actual data from Rutgers University shows 50 years of increasing winter snow extent. Climate Central is simply making things up – like they normally do.
Same story with Autumn snow cover. Last year had the highest extent on record.
The only season which has a downwards trend is spring, but six of the last nine springs have had above average extent.
The complete data set from Reuters shows that snow extent has been increasing since CO2 hit 350 PPM in 1988, and has been continuously above average for the past few years.
The Rutgers data for North America shows no trend since 1973, the date which Climate Central used for their trend.

We had record snow in October, after a very short summer.
Yesterday may have been the snowiest day on record in Boulder. It might be days before I can get to the store. Cycling looks hopeless for the indefinite future.
After their longest ski season on record, Arizona is having record early season skiing.
This is what New Mexico and Arizona looked like around New Years Day this year.
I spent last spring in record snow in Philadelphia, and took this picture at the end of March, 2018.
Climate scientists predicted the exact opposite of what has happened, and having gotten it wrong, they simply lie about the present.
The skill and integrity of climate scientists is abysmal. But to finish on a more positive note – I saw a lot of amazing sights in the Sonoran Desert on New Years Day.
