Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,

Well, I had heard something

Well, I had heard something about the La Nina being a beast, and how that was going to create another bad winter. Also, I'd heard that since we have, over the last century, heated up by a degree, this would allow for more extreme summers and winters. I WANT (lol) another really bad winter (in Ohio. Last winter was beastly in a good way, but I want more snow ;D)so I am liking these figures, and from what I've read and heard they look correct.

Looks pretty logical to me.

Looks pretty logical to me. Consistent with the decent La Nina developing now. Consistent with the other early forecasts I have seen.

Winter '11-'12

Well, considering the summer we are suffering through here in Memphis, a colder/snowier than normal winter sounds pretty good!!!!
