    By now if you haven't heard there's an el nino developing , out in the pacific ocean. Now over the next few months your gonna hear all the climate clowns screaming warm hot blah blah. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/ensostuff/ninoareas_c.jpghttps://encrypted-

    This el nino is very different its called a madouki el nino, based in the western pacific. Summer time in the Great Lakes, Northeast & New England looks to be slightly cooler than normal, with center of cool focused over the Mid West and Great Lakes.

    As for winter I believe the southern mid Atlantic is in for a heck of a winter very similar to 09-10, the northeast should fair out pretty well to with snow.

    I'll keep everyone updatedThumbs Up

    I mowed my own today, to check out the mower and make sure everything works. Had jacket on gloves and a hat, it was only 41 out side. I would love to see 60-70 out side.

    I did get the Harley out the other day for 150 mile ride. I was up in your neck of the woods GV. Clarence, NY

    Right now this el nino seems to be setting up in Nino regions 3.4-4, which is right near the international date line, which promotes a trough around the Aleutians islands and a ridge on the west coast and a trough on the east coast. Another update will be in late October

    What does that mean for snow for the eastern half of the country?

    East

    IT does promote a robust sub tropical jet stream, and combine that with an polar/arctic jet and bam you can get Nor' Easters,:eek: still it all depends if we have 50/50 low(around 50n-and 50w)

    I am glad someone else on here truly understands the implications of the Pacific waters rather than just screaming Nino and Nina....hot and cold

    IMO...the upcoming winter will be like a sequel to a movie. It wont be as good as the first but it will still be entertaining

    So we'll only be getting 114" of snow and 120 sleepless nights?
