Winter Forecast UR Powered Touch Screen Gloves
This Fall has seen cooler than normal temperatures in the north and several snow events falling from interior Canada through Montana and northern Wyoming. Show Down Resort in Montana logged 8-10 inches on September 7th bringing out die hards hiking to earn turns. The Wasatch in Utah just picked up a foot of snow above 9500 feet! Another very moist pattern is setting up for the end of this week which will likely bring high elevation snow to the Pacific Northwest by Saturday and into Wyoming by early next week.
According to the Farmers’ Almanac Winter Forecast.
While winter officially starts on December 21, 2016, the Farmers’ Almanac predictions point to some snow and cold conditions in mid-November in the Northeast, Great Lakes, and Midwest. However, the good news is that the frigidly cold temperatures really won’t take hold until much later in the season.
Get the snow blowers ready in the East and umbrellas in the West!
An active storm track will deliver above-normal precipitation to the Southeast, Northeast and New England states throughout most of the winter, especially February (see above!). In addition, another active storm track from the Pacific will deliver a dose of above-normal precipitation across the Western States. Meanwhile, near or below-normal precipitation will cover the nation’s midsection.
Farmers’ Almanac is also red-flagging the month of February, when a small, but intense storm develops near the Virginia Capes and delivers a heavy snowstorm with strong winds for parts of the Tennessee Valley, through western North Carolina, the Virginias, Maryland, and Delaware northeast into southern New England – some locations could receive 1 to 2 feet of accumulation!
Originally NOAA was forecasting a Moderate or perhaps strong La Nina that often follows El Nino.
The signature of La Nina is cooling of the waters near the equator which has happened over the past 2 months. The latest Climate Prediction Center data is showing slower cooling or perhaps a trend back to neutral (Equal chance of above or below average moisture in most areas of the West). Cooling did occur in the past 60 days but only slightly below normal. There is no evidence at this point of a strong La Nina developing.
While early snow in the Rockies is creating hype there is no correlation between a wet fall and a wet winter. The past 2 months data has shown a weak La Nina which could explain the northern push of colder air and moisture? Remember, thats expected to weaken to neutral as winter approaches so all bets are on the table this season for many areas.
Let the hype begin as we are less than 2 months away from the official start of winter
