That's the second long range I've seen that predicts significant snowfall for the Northeast. Of course, you can't put too much stock in these long range forecasts, but I'll take a good prediction over a bad one any day. August is still dragging on, and just the fact its time to make these prognostications is a positive sign that we're over the summer hump, and on the downhill run into winter. (get that pun? thought it up myself!)

 

Here's the other long range forecast I've seen so far.

Cold AND Dry for the Inland PNW.  Well guess I will have to go to Mt. and Calif. this year,darn.

I like how they've got it broken up by state lines.  Um...really??

Piercing cold in MN - pretty safe bet.

Considering that weather doesn't have strictly defined boundaries. State lines seem just as good as arbitrary circles...

A map like that is almost laughable.  I looked at last year's and I still couldn't tell you if it was accurate or not.

Best line I've seen here in awhile.  These long range forecasts are 99% BSmeter.gif

^^^^Ya but, as a So Cal surfer I have noticed summers were the water is on the cool side (like this year) and the weather is on the cool side (like this year).  Then we often luck into a pretty good winter.  If the PNW is dry because the jet stream dropped down low, Mammoth gets dumped on.

You can't blame Caleb if there ain't good quality snowboarders' entrails these days to read. It's the economy y'knowtongue.gif

What're the relative snow-condition definitions of Biting, Piercing & Bitter?

I just thinks it's"neato" the way it splits perfectly along state lines!
