    Ive been waiting for his forecast, thanks for posting. That storm track map looks good, it puts CT on the cold side of the lows. last year the clipper track low went right above CT and the coastal low track hugged the coast more which brought warmer weather aloft every freakin storm! he shows our temps as being normal, but to the contrary of farmer almanac and snow day. His average winter jet stream which you didnt post puts us in a good place too. Ill take 6-18" of snow every 10 days! :D

    so im only getting fifty inches?

    what was his map for last year?

    not that i have much faith in accuweather last winter i followed them and they were wrong eight out of ten times in my area. I think they pull there totals out of a hat or throw darts at a dart board.

    The farmers almanac also said this would be a dry and extremely hot summer. Allthough we were somewhat dry, we were far from hot this summer. Last time we had a cool summer the following winter was a dud :dizzy:
    The jet stream is key, if your south of the line you dont get snow. last winter that bugger set in and we were just north of it. It did not budge all winter, We had 94" here, when our average was 42". It went up after last season.

    Screw our average, its gonna dump like hell, lol

    No really, I think it will be a good winter, the forcast for the winter are always the same every year, it will be cold and you will have snow. Thats my winter forcast. Weather people can hardly call a storm as its happening much less months before. All these reports are based on current trends compared to trends recorded in the past, sometimes they are right and sometimes wrong. I like hearing that we are suppossed to have a nasty winter but we wont know until its over or at least are 1 month in. TLS, stop trying to rain on our parade, remember, the rain stays in Jersey! LOL

    All we can do is raise our glass to a great winter and hope we get it!

    YAY for no sun spots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
