This November is looking to Be Very Stormy for Most of the Country. I am Calling for A Powerful Storm System(S) to VIGOROUSLY cross the Country, which Will Close the door on Fall, and Open up the door to WINTER!!! This Should Occur IN The LATTER part of the Month, and Should Start In the PAC NW, Treck Across The Country, and Start a Potential Series of Coastal Storms In the EAST, Which Have the Power to Yank down the cold air from North, and Keep the trough in place. Could be exciting, I'm keeping my fingers crossed

I was surprised last year

I was surprised last year because before the Winter we barely had any power outages, by November or something we usually had 1-2 power outages but we didn't.

If this November is anything

If this November is anything like last then I'm excited!

Last November we had snow showers off and on on the 18th and then we got an unexpected 2 inches overnight on the 20 and on the morning of the 21st!

I also remember that at that same time was when the NE and M/A experienced the first region wide cold snap.

It will be similar, But

It will be similar, But different storm Track.

Winter seems to Start IN PNW IN November, and END there by Mid-Winter.

Maybe for once Fort Wayne,

Maybe for once Fort Wayne, Indiana can see more than the bull crap near misses we tend to see most of the time and a November snowstorm for us would be tight. If by any chance theo is right about what I am hearing he is predicting a super el nino or whatever you guys had been talking about, is there more than a small chance for a mild winter like 97-98 or 01-02? I hope not, but I know most you you expect this thing to weaken and it better so we all can have a nice white country for once!

The Old Farmers Almanac

The Old Farmers Almanac Scuffled BIG TIME last year, and I don't even Bother to buy Either. Their Prediction should come out wrong, thats my opinion.

I do Hear they Predicted a Mild & wet Winter for the PNW last Winter, whoa, wasn't that a screw-up.

They did get forecast correct

They did get forecast correct for my area though. They said cold and snowy, but precipitation slightly below normal.

When looking at last year's winter forecast they said cold and wet for the PNW not mild and wet. I think they know what they're talking about so I'll believe their forecast this year, even if it said mild and wet.

You guys don't have to

You guys don't have to believe me, but its with my experiences with the OFA that perhaps long range isn't their strong Point. Not to INsult the OFA, but What I'm seeing right now is something much different as far as I know. Again, while I wouldn't trust the Almanac(I don't buy them anyway), I obviously don't abitilty to say someones wrong until its been done, so thats that.

I hope that prediction comes

I hope that prediction comes true, I am so tired of the lame winters we have had in SE PA for the last several years. I just love the excitement that surrounds everything when a snow storm is coming.

I wouldn't worry mary scott,

I wouldn't worry mary scott, You may be in an area primed for snow this winter. As for the Upper Dakodas, SE US, And PNW, I'm not so sure.

Hey!

I remember this from the old weather fourm! Sounds like they're starting to move some of the old posts over. :)

From what I'm seeing now, November will be stormy only in the East while dry conditions occur in the West.

The PNW should have a VERY

The PNW should have a VERY stormy november if I'm correct, the Cold will start in the PNW with the Big Storm, and Winter Will be BRIEF there. I expect a Cold & stormy/Snowy December, and a WARM & DRY rest of the winter, with Less Precip, and warmer storms, but potential snow for interior mountains

This winter should be

This winter should be different than the last one for the PNW. First off, I see a very Cold & Stormy Late Fall. December looks Very Cold & Stormy/ Maybe some lowland snow. It should be a MINI version of last winter, but not nearly as bad. IN fact, as the Winter continues, it Should get progressivly Warmer after January 3rd, and while Snow for the Mountains is normal, I expect, a WARMER & Drier second 2/3 of the winter. Maybe an Interior snow event in Febuary, but anywhere snow is uncommon, it will most likely not occur. If your in the mountains and you get heavy snows evrry year, then you can expect a Mild but moisture filled atmosphere, and snows below average after january 3rd. Doesn't look as windy either. Thats my take.

snow

I can't say exactly how much, but I can say that If My prediction for the El Nino to Weaken is correct, then there might be some lowland snowfall. But nothing even close to what happened last year

Except for the snowfall

Except for the snowfall amount... by your predictions, it should be pretty much like last year for me. Last year December was very snowy, and after December 31, we only received maybe two more snow falls for the rest of the season which only amounted to like 2 or 3 cm. It was sunny the rest of the year.

Detroit

(sorry if my predictions are very bold, its just the way I forecast)

Anyway, Detroit looks Very Frigid this winter. While pricipitation looks BELOW average, Sowfall looks near average, as most should fall as snow.
