These maps are coming out like crazy now enjoy. ~Dan~
Like it, hope December, as well as the rest of the fall and winter will turn out the way it has been predicted, it would be nice to finally see a winter with above normal snow and below normal temperatures in Colorado and other areas that are normally cold and snowy
Looks good to me! Anything would be a definite improvement from last winter. Of course we’re on the line (Richmond, VA). That’s okay I’ll take a white Christmas!
A white christmas for Long island would make me the happiest person alive
yes hope a white christmas this year for western NY
A white Christmas here would be fantastic. I think the last time we had one here was eight years ago if I remember correctly. This map is indicating that’s a possibility for Central Ohio, so keeping my fingers crossed.
What does Cold & Stormy & Snow mean? Does stormy mean blizzards or does it mean winter time thunderstorms? I like the cold and snow part!
Good question ShawnM. Va is in the “cold & stomy” part also. I’m hoping it means near-blizzard; but will setting for 3″ or more of snow!
We had a blizzard back in February 2011 there was no thundersnow I believe but we had between 15-20 inches of snow in one storm. Back in December 2006 we had a snowstorm with thundersnow it did that for like 4 or 5 hours and we ended up with I think 18 inches of snow, with the majority of the snow during the thunder and lightning. The snowflakes weren’t huge it was almost like dust or very small snowflakes but we still ended up with that amount of snow. I love winter lightning it was mainly a bluish tinted lightning.
I’ll take this over the hot summer any day!
Last time it snowed here in this part of South Carolina in Dec. was 1989.
0_0 Then do you even know what snow looks like? lol
I can say that in Colorado, any type of storm that hits after mid-October is going to be snow, so I will chuck stormy up to powerful winter storms with copious amounts of snow possible.
Well, sometimes the wording in forecasts can be tricky, because each area has a uniqueness, and those words can mean different things depending on the region it occurs in, so that forecast is a general statement, basically leaving the rest to your own imagination.
thanks for the map it is always cold and snowy here in new york city and it gets stormy too
I hope for a white Christmas also. More times than not, it’s raining or cloudy or partly sunny or sunny here on Christmas. Last white Christmas was in 2008.
Meant to say last time it snowed a foot or more was Dec. 1989.
