Which means less snow on the east coast, warmer drier south, very dry southwest and very cold/snowy in the northwest and midwest.

What's their track record with such predictions?

Pretty good, it's just to early to tell if the La Nina will be strong or weaker. There's definately a La Nina in effect, the question is how strong will it be.

Last year was a bitch. It wasn't all that cold and the amount of snow we got wasn't bad... it was just that winter lasted 6 fucking months.

Another one of those and they can take me to a nice rubber lined room.

Good. I'm tired of these wet Christmas mornings.

Bring me a blizzard, damnit!

These suck for us because we get all the fires in the Spring.

There was a weak/moderate La Nina during the 2007-08 winter and I think WA got some good snow. This La Nina may be stronger, there are predictions that it may be the strongest since '55. Then again, who knows for sure.

Coincidence?


Missouri had a psudo-fall about 4 weeks back. Trees were dropping leafs like mad.

3 days later, back to summer trees.

I've never seen such a thing. We weren't even in a drought to have explained that nonsense.

Let it snow. We never get our fair share here. Bring it.

I'm hoping for another big snow year.

I wouldn't shed a tear if we missed another 11 days of class this spring.

We had 13 fucking inches of snow in Dallas last year. Fuck that, I don't put up with 100 degree summers to deal with 13 fucking inches of snow. Damned global warming.

We've had some mornings in the 40s lately. Though it got up to 90 or so today, the next few days are only supposed to hit the low 70s. We've had some bushes and trees showing some color already. This is Colorado at 6K ft elevation. I've heard that aspen in the high country are turning as well.

i'm predicting 72 degrees and sunny for the entire winter in PA

Bring on the snow! I would like many days of light snow - fresh tracks

The eruptions from Mount Sinaburg and Keragentang in Indonesia will efect the weather here in the US.

Currently the Sinaburg is clearing its throat and after the future main eruption it will change the weather pattern around the world.

I'm starting to see some change of color here in MT (3,000 feet) but only in a few trees. A few leaves on the ground. Temps have been all over the chart. 80's the past couple of days to 50's and rain today. Low 60's and rain in the forecast for the next week. We've had a couple of winter storm watches/warnings for above 6,500 in the past few weeks.

Last year it was like someone threw a switch. Went from normal fall to all the leaves dropping off the trees within a week or so the first week of October.

I'm also keeping an eye on the 2 street cats that hang around my place. So far no real change in fur growth on either of them and I've still got flowers on some of the plants in the yard.

I wouldn't worry about that prediction. Farmers Almanac says different and they are usually right.http://www.farmersalmanac.com/weather/2010/08/29/2011-winter-outlook-the-wait-is-over/

It was cold here last winter though. Killed a lot of plants all over. A warm dry winter will be good for business here and very welcome.

I had heard we may get a very snowy winter like a few years ago. Already seeing leaves change here and starting to drop
Link Posted: 9/5/2010 5:41:48 PM EDT
I've been guessing we'll get a warmer winter this year. Mild summer last year, winter came in strong, then summer did the same. 'Bout time for a weak season again.

I had my bike put away for only 4 months last winter but it sure seemed much longer than that. We got about 20" the last of Nov./first of Dec. and it stayed all winter long. I also don't think it ever got above ~ 25º from that time until mid March. So that shit, and the rest of the storms hardly ever melted off the streets and sidewalks. Talk about having cabin fever! I sure hope we don't have another like last one.

That;s an interesting metric. I have noticed that when the dogs and cats down in Houston start putting out serious fur that it's going to be cold and wet.

I hope so. If its going to be cold enough for snow, there better be snow on the ground. Last year was the first time in years where we had snow all winter. Plus, the kids need a good snow fort.

Guess I better get my chains out of storage.

Link Posted: 9/5/2010 7:23:08 PM EDT
The leaves are already starting to change here at lower elevations and its a few weeks too early for that. Its going to be a rough winter.
Link Posted: 9/5/2010 7:23:56 PM EDT
Fuck. I hate how my life revolves around plowing snow for 5 months a year.

We just had a cold snap.

I do believe it got below 90.
