    I don't like the look of that too much. We have had a lot of rain so if it continues it might be right. That would be 3 winters in a row with above normal precipation.:cry:

    While I believe the East Coast could get more snow this winter, doesnt mean that it will be above average, keep in mind the East Coast hardly receive any snow last winter which means any bit more snow, like a couple inches more could justify what they are talking about.

    Them putting out a Winter Forecast this early...In July has me thinking one thing, i think they are too trigger happy to wait until early to mid fall to wait and see how further parameters for a good winter persist, since they didnt see a good winter last winter, they couldnt wait to post it because obviously, it seems like every winter, they make a prediction of a cold and snowy east coast and warm west coast.

    While i believe their are many factors that could change to prevent that map you seefrom happening and totally turn the whole forecast over. I dont think ive ever seen accuwx post a winter forecast this early.

    Last winter i had 31.1 inches of snow in my town. Im 20 miles sw of nyc. Nyc had 27.3 which is also above there avg. In fact from philly north to boston alll finish above avg....so i dont kno how he can say we had no snow last winter. Last winter was one of the best in a few years here in the sw burb's of nyc. Snowfall has really been down south of philly in baltimore and dc

    While it seems that every patterne very winter is not very supportive for my region, Eastern Nebraska. Last winter was a great winter just east and North of our area but we just got barely missed by every storm, was very frustrating. Sometimes in our past El Nino Winters we have been known to receive a couple big whoppers and nothings else.

    I hope they are right. I need a really good winter to pay myself back for the '98 I got. 2 storms of 4-6 inches is REALLY good for us. 3 or more would be unreal!

    Bastardi might be a good forcaster but he seems really off his rocker. He enjoys long range trends and forcasts and has been pretty good with them but IMO this is way too early to be putting out winter forcasts. Plus he says that according to trends Chicago should have a good winter then later on he says we will be deprived of snow. I just hope for our average, that's all I can ask for or hope for. We will just have to wait and see.

    agree with you doug.....sometimes he gets to excited and sticks to his guns....usually busts storms for the east coast all the time......with that said he is one of the better long term forecasters....he said this year would be a slow hurricane season and a cool summer.....he has been spot on with that......we shall see....alot of weather people said the mid-west would not end up with another snowy winter last October...look what happen? another blockbuster. we shall see if you go for the hat trick.....i say you guys get 40 of snow and avg temps

    Thanks Bossman

    bossman its really a crap shoot.....i will have a better idea come the end of august.....yet i do think there will be more clippers this winter...and with a storm track up the east coat you should see more apps runners.....yet more can just be 1-2....as the apps runners have been a thing of the past
