Warm El Nino Novembers and Ensuing Winters Feast or Famine? All Is Not Lost


Recommended Posts

I think this is pretty much been bandied about about this upcoming winter.  There is an amazing 

snowfall split in these analogs. Bottom line though is none of them are superdupertorchy (current normal is 34.8F) and to have half above normal snowwise (only 3 of 8 winters average above normal) does increase the chances of a snowy winter (corroborates a similar percentage with the Eurasian snow cover) even if it doesnt look that promising on the front end.  Notice 1997-98 pulled a Kevin Costner Big Chill and is on the cutting room floor.
