Colder—But Not Colder Than Average

This winter is forecast to be much colder than last year’s, but—just like last winter—not colder than average. In fact, a large part of the northern United States will experience milder-than-average temperatures (though we would still recommend having your long underwear on-hand), while much of the South and West can expect to feel cooler than normal. Escaping this chill are Florida and the Southeast, where milder-than-average temperatures will be felt.

A Wet and Snowy Winter All-Around

Precipitation will be at above-normal levels throughout the country, which will translate to equally above-normal amounts of snowfall in parts of the Northeast, central Great Lakes, central Plains, Intermountain region, and from eastern Tennessee through New Mexico. Get your shovels ready! Notable exceptions to this wet winter are the Pacific Northwest and Upper Midwest, where less precipitation than average is expected.

2018 Winter Weather Forecast: Canada

OFA Winter Weather 2017-2018 Canada

Mostly Mild…

From coast to coast, Canadians are in for a milder-than-average winter overall. (A welcome change, we think!)

…And Not So Snowy

Most of Canada will see below-normal levels of rain and snow this winter, though the southeast and northwest corners of the country are exceptions. Southeastern Ontario, Yukon, northern Labrador, and most of Quebec will see more snow than normal, while the rest of Atlantic Canada can expect above-average amounts of rain.

The paso tx, has a very dry

The paso tx, has a very dry and warm climate since the last 25 of winters, have been abnormal, every year there are temperatures well above the norm and extreme droughts.

I tend to suspect that the United States is changing the patterns of storms at the top of the Gulf of Alaska and this in turn take another course, so they do not impact the USA directly.

Because it is not common in this area to be so warm and more in the last 5 winter, that they have seemed autumns more than winters.

Now you predict for this winter

almanac-com/sites/default/files/users/Almanac%20Staff/updated_1718_winter_map_with_akhi.png

That in this area, winter 2017 to 2018 was going to be cold and snowy, especially in the range of

almanac-com/weather/longrange/region/us/14

And thing that has been the opposite.

For me there is a black hand in the weather and every day I am convinced, from what I mentioned above, USA is changing the course of those storms systems and this in turn position a rich hight pressure to block all storms system in the Gulf of Alaska.

And to show, what happens in California with forest fires, it is the bread of every winter and that is anormal!

chemtrails and geoengineering effect future weather predictions

how will they affect weather patterns and future weather predictions

CHEMTRAILS AND GEOENGINEERING EFFECT FUTURE WEATHER PREDICTIONS

Weather predicting is much easier under a chemtrail sky as prescibed solutions lead to predictable conditions.

Chemtrails

Chemtrails effect our health more than they effect the weather. It's more of a genocide with poisons to make us deathly ill. Or just death. The people who control the chemtrails are lying to us. Don't take my word for it. Check into it, investigate it. Then the truth shall be revealed to you. There is no global warming either. When God's written word says that there shall be all seasons until the end days, then that is how it shall be. Funny, how people rely on themselves and come up with all of these false notions, when all they would have to do is go to the source whom created it in the first place.
