    Hear is what i found

    Sky Valley), Maryland (Aspen Hill, Bethesda, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring), Michigan (Detroit, Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Farms, Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pointe Woods), New Jersey (Augusta, Belvidere, Branchville, Newton, Swartswood), New York (Auburn, Binghamton, Elmira, Ithaca, Syracuse), North Carolina (Asheville, Hickory, Kernersville, Morganton, Winston-Salem), Pennsylvania (Allentown, Altoona, Lancaster, Reading, Scranton), Tennessee (Mountain City, Roan Mountain, Trade), Virginia (Arlington, Burke, Lynchburg, Reston, Roanoke), West Virginia (Charles Town, Keyser, Martinsburg, Petersburg, Ranson).

    The winter season will be colder than normal, on average, with above-normal snowfall. Most of the snow and cold will come during December and January, when temperatures will be seven or eight degrees below normal, on average. The rest of the season will be much milder, with near-normal temperatures in November and March and a very mild February. The coldest periods will be in mid-December and mid- and late January. The heaviest snow will occur in early and mid-December, mid- and late January, and early March.

    April will start with a late-season snowstorm in the north, and temperatures will be relatively cool for most of the month. May will be a bit cooler and drier than normal.

    June will be a bit cooler than normal, on average, and then temperatures will be hotter than normal through most of August. Rainfall will be below normal, especially in the south.

    September and October will be warmer than normal, with much-below-normal rainfall in September and near-normal rainfall in October.


    Hope this is this what your looking for. I think that was for nov 2005-oct 2006. could be wrong but will see.

    The weather man can't get next week right. I'm not sure how you predict a year in advance.

    I want to become a weather man. Talk about job security. Wake up in the morning, head into the news room, pull some ideas out of your ass on what you think the weather might be. Take a shot in the dark, and eventhough your wrong, which you always are. YOU STILL GET PAID. Predict 2-8" of snow, and hey, your bound to hit one of the #'s right? Absolutely rediculous that those guys are allowed to give predictions. I have put some serious thought into paying for a weather service this year. I wish I could justify the $300 a month though. Anyone have any ideas, or want to go in halfsies???

    The weather channel, weather underground, local radio, and thirty 34 years playing the game, with the information they provide I can guess as well as they can, and with about the same accuracy.
