We are 4 for 4 as of right now, thats looking good.
Spellbound, where are you located? We had peasoup on the 1st and light fog on the 2nd, nothing since.
We’ve had 2 fogs here thus far. I suspect some more with the influx of cooler weather and more rain chances throughout the Mid-Atl and northern tier.
1 for 5. July there were maybe 2 fogs all month.
In my region specifically though, I personally have not observed any correlation between August fog and snowfall the following winter.
Last August was hardly fog at all, and we got a ton of snow the following winter. Year before was the opposite… foggy August followed by snowless winter. *shrug*
Fayette county, south western Pa
no fog this morning
Fog in Central Alabama this morning. First one I’ve seen this month.
We haven’t had any fog until now. So far we have had 2 think ones. Has anyone been able to watch a fog roll in? Its just amazing to watch, especially when it rolls in over a lake.
here in my part of the mid atlantic in SE Virgina, we’ve had about 4 fogs. I will be checking out some persimmons in another week or two! I will title it the persimmons forecast for mid atlantic.
I haven’t noticed any fog yet here in Richmond VA. Not to worry; we still have 21 more days in August
cool, SO THAT MEANS our forecasts will be very similar. Since we live close, our fogs will forecast the same weather, so if i get a fog, which signals a snowfall, you most lkely will see this same snowfall, so no worries.
I was thinking the same thing Fatima20. I must add that I’m not outside till after 8:ish most mornings. Perhaps the fogs is gone by the time I’m out and about. Fall of 2009, I remember a couple of days in August where the fog lingered until after 9:00 am! That just happen to be a really good snowy winter for the mid atlantic!
yeah, hopefully the mid atlantic sees a cold and snowy winter, as we need as much precip(snow), as possible! Don’t worry, we’ll see a snowy winter this year, I’m sure.
Let me clarify for fatima, you can have above average snowfall WITHOUT above average precipitation.
Precipitation is measured as liguid water. Therefore, 1 inch of water translates to 1 foot of snow.
So being as winter is dry precipitation wise anyway, if you average 3 inches of liquid precip in Winter…you may see a foot of snow and think “hey, we have above average snowfall this year” while it is still dry in actuality.
There continues to be very weak fog around 6 am most mornings, and completely gone by 7:30 am.
FatherFrost is right, in fact I believe that last year most of the great lakes region had below-average precipitation yet well-above-average snowfall just because they didn’t get any rain.
Much of the arctic is actually considered a type of desert because of the lack of actual precipitation that it gets.
true fatherfrost, but here we get lots of rain here, and so much here, it’s ridiculous and not even funny how much rain we see here in the winter, so condering that this la nina will cool us off and will make our area very cold a lot during the winter, these rainfalls almost like monsoons because the rains last us a day at a time, will bring many long snowfalls here at a time.
