    Ok so we have a very strong LA Nina that is developing and this could be the total opposite of what happened last winter in many places of the country. I'll issue my first winter forecast september 16th, but as of now, I would expect the southern plains and southeastern United States to be warmer then average and below average precip due to the average southeastern ridge's during La Ninas. Areas of the Pacific northwest through the northern plains, great lakes and northeastern United States(mainly New England States) will experience brutal cold temperatures and above average precipitation. The Mid Atlantic through the Ohio Valley should experience normal temperatures and precip. The thing that could make this winter one for the record books in terms for cold temps is the volcanic activity this year as well as the low amount of sun spots. Ok, so that is my current thoughts.

    Predicting an exact amount is almost impossible, so I wont do that.

    Is it going to be more than last year? Are you able to see that in your vision?

    This forecast as well as the accuweather.com winter outlook issued yesterday are looking good for the great lakes getting more snow than last year.

    Colorado will get pretty hard this winter including below average temperatures and above average snowfall accumulations. I will be sure and talk about this in my winter forecast.
