Winter 2020-2021 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Next winter can't be any worse than this one so why not look ahead?
Good god, talk about an early jump off the cliff...

Also, CFS only goes out to October, and it is above average temps from April to the end of the run (for now)

Warmer than average, wetter than average, below normal or no snow. 2019-20 might go down as my first winter period without seeing any snow. Cliff? Oh I'm off the cliff. I'm swimming with the sharks below

Oh but it can. I've heard that every year for at least 5 years now and yet here we are. Worse every year! I'll never make that mistake again.

You can't get worse than no measurable snow.

No but it can very well be warmer which will result in snowless again.

Mid 70's today is pretty bad.

My winter 2020-2021 outlook:  bitter cold, below-average temperatures and bone dry from Thanksgiving to St. Patrick’s Day.  In other words, the exact opposite of 2019-2020.

An el-pinhead will move across the country and rain Republicans and democrats fall of 2020.  Whatever the temperature, a general drought of intelligence is expected.

So another mild and wet winter?  Yippee.  Same song; fourth verse.  :rolleyes:

Looks great! I’m all in!

Yep. A map like that could make the difference between 35º and rain and 33º and rain.

That means a snowy winter for sure after his last few winter forecasts!

Wow...Joe B going bleak for winter in the U.S.  That's about as rare as a SE snowstorm.  Too bad we can't rely on folklore.  We've had multiple foggy days in August so far.  Old people (the age I am now) used to say the more foggy days in August, the more snow in the winter.

The last time we had a weak La Nina, it snowed in Atlanta and Charleston in separate storms, and we had such a prolonged and severe cold spell that kids played ice hockey on frozen ponds in Wilmington...all of that occurring during a winter with above normal temperatures

Grit,

That was my first winter here in NC.  We had a decent little snow before Christmas.  January saw a good snow and almost a week where it didn't get above freezing.  I would take a repeat of that winter and be thrilled.

I am one of those old people of which you speak.  You asked for it. It gets earlier every year.

Top Six Southern Winter Folklore Sayings

1. If you count the morning fogs in August you will know how many August mornings were foggy.

2. A heavy crop of acorns will lead to fatter than average squirrels next spring.

3. If it thunders in winter, 10 days later it will have happened 10 days ago.

4. If you study the bands of the wooly worm you will know how many are brown and how many are black.

5. Snow that lays on the ground for more than three days is dirty.

6. A ring around the moon means your Lasik surgeon screwed up.
