I'm in Northern MN right now and we have some snow, but not a lot. It is actually raining and super icy at the moment. January thaw.
There has not been a "normal" winter here in several years.Back when I was growing up here we would get feet of snow and sometimes there would still
be snow in the woods in July, but I have not seen that in many years now. Same with the snow pack here, it has been almost nil for at least the last
couple of years, even if there is more snow on the ground here now than this time last year, it is still way below normal.
It is this stupid nation wide drought.
I think that is what you are noticing with the maps.
