Old obviously...but still a forecast he made.
AccuWeather.com Long Range Expert Joe Bastardi believes there is a significant chance for particularly frigid winters in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 into 2014-2015.

For the record, the 34 inch totals from Sandy were on Roan Mountain and Mount Leconte. Beech Mountain got 22 inches

Winter starts December 21 and we already looking at next year, lol!!
For the most people on this forum winter starts December 1st. This is supposed to be a science forum and met winter is December - February.
I'm going with a 50 / 50 shot landing either warmer or cooler than average.

When I was a kid all I had was a few minutes of tv happy talk weather for a model, and if there was a criptic mention of "rain, and 32" at the end of the five day, all I had was my fantasy deductions that it could mean sleet or snow chances...maybe.... and I would hope and hope And if Bob, for example, scoffs at my GFS delusions, as I know he is not a fan of the long, long range, I'm fine with that, because I know he and I share a favorite sleet storm, and that's a stronger bond than any discussion over the merits of long range models.... and, I also know when he or Cheez start to honk a storm, it's time to perk up, because I'm no longer stuck with a few minutes of happy talk tv, but have at my disposal scientific models and folks who know how to read them, and who know what they can or can't do I am today blessed with a fountain of knowledge at my finger tips, and knowledgable people galore...but I also have learned thru many hard winter times....you just have to wait and see what happens, lol.

Well I said this winter couldn't be worse than the last and it was pretty close. Both were absolutely horrid. With this in mind I won't even begin to speculate about next year.
I can't imagine 2 winters worse than the last 2 here. So, the worst thing that will happen here is that it's as bad as the last 2. Of course, there is still the rest of March and April to turn the tide.

5* lock forecast:
There will be some days warmer than normal, and a string of days with below normal temps. There will be 5-10 storm systems that the southeast will track. For many of us, it will be a devastating close call. For others, they will see snow. Wilkes will find a cure for broken skies, and Brick will tell us that the models have to trend in his favor because he is due for a good snow.
Take it to the bank.
