Here is the long range winter forecast, and by long range I mean the winter up to mid January. Yes, I know, fall just started and anything over 180 hours is supposed to be crazy wishcasting, but since I've been right the last few years, here we go anyway.
EVERYTHING will be early by one month. Everything will be colder by one month. This means the possibility of November snow, and also the possibility that Pacific storms will have cold enough temperatures for sticking snow (or ice storm!) at sea level. This should be a good snow year. And since basic temperatures will be lower, anything that comes from the north or northeast should be an arctic blast.
No, this is not my idea of a fun forecast. I hate cold weather. The weather pattern so far has been one month ahead of last year, and I think it's going to continue at least through the middle of our cold season.
