The questionable claim from warmers that global warming will mean "more extreme" weather, including snowfall, doesn't hold up when you look at the evidence. If we saw a warming trend, and there was more snow, then you could argue that. But when the decade trend is cooling, it's ludicrous to claim it was warming that caused the increase in snow.
We do see a global warming trend. One of the major reasons for seeing more snow in certain areas of the northern hemisphere is because the warmer global temperatures mean an increase in ocean evaporation and more moisture in the atmosphere. Physics bitches - it works!

As I have in the past, I suggest to any mods
Everything you just posted is wrong.
A scientific view of reality recognizes the association with temps and snow amounts. It snows more when it's colder, not warmer.The alarmists will try and say the precip amounts are what causes more snow. But for most locations that is just bullshit.When faced with such factual scientific data, the believer will do anything, except change their mind.
The record old that has hit the US isn't unexpected, and actually fits the trend of winter cooling for the regions hardest hit. What is a bit different is this cold is so widespread and extreme that it actually is leading to less snowfall for many areas.
Forecasts can generally predict how much precipitation an area may have several months in advance, but when it comes to specifically predicting snowfall, we're more in the dark. However, a new model may offer more advanced warning when it comes to the white stuff.
To put this in a longer historical perspective and compute actual odds of such an event, we used the Berkeley Earth System Temperature daily temperature analyses 1880-2013, extended by ERA-interim up to 2016/17 and ECMWF analyses and forecasts for the last few months.
