you’ve guessed right rmgladhill we’re both part of the mid atlantic i’m in virginia
So what do you mean by “Winter Battle Zone” in Alabama? Just curious and hope for some snow.
Think Winter battle zone means could be snow or could be freezing rain n such.
Does snowstorms and rain mixed in Missouri, mean more ice storms? I live in NW Missouri.
Sapporo1 according to the map I made up at the top of the page Colorado is supposed to have an average winter this year.
Midwest David no it doesn’t mean you all will have more ice-storms it means you will have snowstorms with a little bit of rain mixing in with them.
I’m not gonna believe this for the fact that last year we were said to get above average snows (Average: 45 inches) yet we only got 6 inches from that storm on 2-29. All my dreams shattered…
@ Punisher, I agree with you on not believing the map…but it does give me a small strand of hope. This is the second map I have seen with a set up like this so hopefully, the odds are in our favor…along with all the other snow lover’s here on the forum.
I’m hoping this winter setup is right. Last winter was such a disappointment. We only got a foot of snow here, which 2 inches less than half the average snowfall. So, keeping my fingers crossed!
Yeah, I only got one inch from November and the average is like 5 or 6 inches.
i live in the northeast how much snow does cold and snowy mean
ps.i live in agawam, massachussetts
rickymadialessi cold and snowy means that you will have above average snowfall.
The weather centre has released a precipitation map that they said represents an El Nino type pattern, which showed most of the precip being along the east coast, and across Colorado and the entire Southwest, with some precip over the midwest and very dry across the PNW and far northern plains, I guess I could agree with that being that is the typical El Nino set up, however, this doesn’t seem to be setting up like a normal El Nino given the information I have been looking at, so the truth is, until a true El Nino pattern actually sets up shop here, I would say just about anything goes in the US.
Given the current trend, I would say that it looks grim for the southern plains into Kansas and much of Missouri, unless that upper level ridge dies off or shifts, August could be hell on earth for those areas, I hope for the death of the high, because it would be absolutely devastating if it shifts west or east, however, if it shifts north into the Dakotas or especially Minnesota, with as far above normal precip as they have had in the far north, and soil moisture levels far, far above normal in that region, it could be enough to kill that horrible high pressure bubble, and break the curse of heat and drought increasing with such intensity, so that most areas can possibly start to recover a little.
Good news is I am seeing storms so powerful that they are pushing right through the high pressure and bringing some desperately needed relief in eastern Missouri, western MO however, is not faring so well.
I will be one happy camper if this comes true! Another winter like the last one and I’m out of business.
When does FA put out their winter map? The end of Aug.?
@shadowloki10 I think so. I’m thinking it’ll come around Aug. 20, because that’s about when they say the 2013 FA will ship. They’ll probably do this so it doesn’t spoil it for those who have ordered the book.
thanks for the weather map
ok, i pretty much have the same question as rickymadialessi, but i live in central pa. so would that mean the same for us?
Tons of snow(;
