Looking good for 1-2" of snow

Looking good for 1-2" of snow here. If that arctic front can slide a little bit further westward, my snow amounts would be higher.

If it slides westward us in

If it slides westward us in the east won't get any cool down at all and will continue to swelter like much of us will be doing tomorrow.

Forecast high here tomorrow is 89.

Expecting snow in October is

Expecting snow in October is like expecting grass to grow in January. It's likely NOT going to happen, in fact, in the last 30+ years I only remember snow falling ONCE in October in our area, and that was in 1991. Oct 28th to be correct, and it snowed throughout the entire lower mainland. Apart from a TINY TINY skiff (not even 1/10th of an inch) that was the last snow we had that season until the following Fall/Winter in 1992/1993. Sad year... Anyway, with El Nino weakening, I personally believe we will have more of an average fall and winter this year, with normal snowfall for our area, which should be about 20-30" this season.

snow in October

On the weatherbug site it's saying that El Nino is getting stronger, I'm confused and befuddled here, is it weakening or getting stronger ? I'm hoping for tons of snow, so that would be a weakening El Nino right ??

The SST anomalies have really

The SST anomalies have really been fading, in fact Nino 1+2 have dropped so much they are below neutral now. It's still too early to tell what the outcome will be, however this time next month, we will have a much better idea. At least it's moving in the right direction. I do believe though, that we will have a more normal winter. Also, Environment Canada is calling for a colder than normal fall and winter for west coast BC.
