FWIW, here’s the Winter 2013 Map from the Old Farmer’s Almanac:

Woops. Didn’t mean to post it twice. Oh well.
It bears repeating!
Whats up with this winter? There’s forecasts pointing to every direction.
I like the cold part, but “dry” is another a curse word in my book when it comes to winter….how do the Carolina’s and Georgia get snow and not New Jersey?
Does anyone else find that odd?
oh and let me add….. it also says Snow, in TEXAS? I will take this forecast with a grain of salt.
also, whiteout, I agree, there are forecasts all over the place this year!
The cold, I agree for the mid atlantic to be cold. But disagree with the dry part.
I like the forecast since I’m in South Carolina but I do believe the map is a CONE-fused. Which, is worse than confused.
I like what its saying for the bi-state of MO/IL area…we have three colors depending on which part of the states you live in!
But yes, this map is ALLLL over the place…wonder if Accuweather and Weather channel are forecasting a “We have NO clue what is going on this winter” and proceed to throw their hands up…confused map…
You guys judge before you know the factors in the forecast. Tisk, tisk. I’m not defending it. It does look sort of ramb-shamble and all over the place. But the northern tier is typically warmer than average while the southern tier is cooler in El Nino winter’s. This is due to the high latitude blocking that usually occurs in an El Nino regime. The south also tends to be stormier, hence the dryness in the north.
Don’t discredit, research!
Proof is in the pudding…so we shall see.
Hmmm, the majority of Colorado is wet and the central mountains and front range are dry…hmm let me see, nope, in no way does that make any sense, in the 20+ years that I have lived in Colorado, I have never seen a pattern like that, this is the way it works, one half is drier, the other half is wetter, or the whole state is wet or dry, but never, ever broken up into odd sectors like that, the reason for the typical halving is due to that big river splitter called the Continental Divide, it does more than just divide rivers you know, it also divides weather, western half will see the same weather as the rest of the west typically, and the eastern half recieves the “east of the rockies” patterns, so it is tricky usually which side gets wet and which dry on El Nino years, but in the long run, the Continental Divide and westward in Colorado is who ends up winning the wet battle, but we will see this year
If I knew a simple map from a fellow almanac would draw such iyre, I wouldn’t have posted it. Too bad there’s no “delete thread” option….
It’s ok Fatherfrost….lol beside we both know Mother nature does what she wants anyway…
It seems like they aren’t counting on a steady storm track at all. Interesting. At least, those lead to the most interesting winters.
I don’t mind dry if it’s cold enough for the snow we get to not melt.
aw bummer! I hope its wayyyyy wrong! no more dry!
Looks great for South Carolina.
Well, if you look into the latest forecast models for Accuweather, The Weather Centre and Weather Advance, I don’t know about winter, but I can definitely see a pattern setting up for fall, and it includes a very large bout of storms and cold shots in the central US from the lee side of the Rockies to the upper Midwest and Great Lakes down into the Southern Plains.
And that would mean the east gets no snow if you’re south of 40N. Fun, fun…
Let the wintertime depression commence…NOW.
lets hope your wrong as far as the east goes…
If so, my whatever is 41.37°N, which means snow for me!
