Winter weather outlook
November 20, 2005
Although it's next to impossible to predict the weather for periods longer than 2 weeks, I'm somewhat concerned about the weather outlook for the coming ski season. First of all, when this month is over, it will go down as one of the warmest Novembers in recent memory. In fact, Hudson Bay to the North in Canada is going to freeze over a full month later than normal this year. It should be noted than when the mid-Atlantic experiences a mild Nov., it is followed by a milder than normal winter 2/3 of the time. Of course, last year we also had a mild Nov. and ended up having an unusual warm spell in Jan. However, we had a normal to better than normal (especially in WV) late ski season in the mid-Atlantic.
My best guess is that the weather in the mid-Atlantic is going to be rather unsettled this ski season with slightly above average temps.
MM- did you just find your post from last year and cut and paste it? Since you're in your usual contrarian mood, I should warn you that while you've been away lots of people have posted positive or at least neutral comments about BK too. See? Without your pessimism around this whole place is going to heck in a handcart. Better get busy.
Quote:My thinking of this is that we'll get much stronger lake effect snows in December (since the lakes are warmer than usual), as soon as the cold air starts flowing across them. Looks like this may begin for turkey day.
..warmest Novembers in recent memory...
I think the hurricane season was just the beginning the weird weather patterns. Could be a year that the east is better than west.
I see visions of "The Day After Tomorrow" (except that LA really needs some tornados to clean that city up).
That movie was awesome...
Id like to see that much snow...at the resorts...but not on the road..lol...all that snow wouldnt be much good if nobody could get there to ski it...
