*** SPECIAL REPORT: MY 2009 WINTER OUTLOOK *** DATE: 09/03/2008 11:26:17

WINTER OUTLOOK FOR THE MID-ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST REGION

———————————————————————————————————————-

WINTER WILL LIKELY BE COLDER THAN AVERAGE WITH ABOVE AVERAGE PRECIPITATION FOR MOST OF THE NORTHEAST AND MID-ATLANTIC REGION

———————————————————————————————————————-


I THINK WINTER WILL START AROUND THANKSGIVING WITH COLD AND OCCASIONAL FLURRIES FOLLOWED BY A 7 TO 10 DAY STREAK OF EXCEPTIONALLY COLD WEATHER WITH WELL BELOW NORMAL TEMPS IN MID DECEMBER THAT MAY BE IN COMBINATION WITH OUR FIRST SIGNIFIGANT (4 OR MORE INCHES) SNOWFALL … BUT I THINK MOST OF THE WINTER WILL BE LOWS 10 TO 20 AND HIGHS 25 To 35 IN A 60 TO 90 DAY STREAK STARING IN EARLY DECEMBER AND ENDING IN EARLY MARCH WITH 90 PERCENT OF THE DAYS HAVING HIGH TEMPS AT OR BELOW THE 40 DEGREE MARK … HENCE ALOT OF SNOW IS LIKELY FOR THE SEASON (MOSTLY IN LATE JANUARY AND RIGHT THRU FEBURARY) I ALSO THINK RECORDS WILL BE THREATENED EITHER BY MOST SNOW IN A SEASON OR BY MOST SNOW FROM A STORM OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT IF NOT BOTH !!! THE COLDEST WAVE WILL LIKELY BE IN MID TO LATE JANUARY WITH POSSIBLY RECORD COLD LASTING FOR FIVE TO TEN DAYS BEFORE CLOSER TO NORMAL TEMPS RESUME IN FEBURARY — JUST A HINT I HAVE A HUNCH A 4 DAY NOREASTER WILL BE STALLED OR NEARLY STATIONARY NEAR THE JERSEY SHORE AND OR LONG ISLAND IN MID FEBURARY PRODUCING 20 TO 40 INCHES OF SNOW BETWEEN DC AND BOSTON WITH LARGEST AMOUNTS NORTHWEST OF 95 AND IN THE BOSTON AREA — MOST AREAS WILL BE TWO TO FOUR DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE MOST OF THE WINTER AND HAVE 150 TO 200 PERCENT OF THEIR NORMAL SNOWFALL FOR THE SEASON … SO IT LOOKS LIKE FUN IF YOU LOVE THE SNOW THIS YEAR !!!

NOTE: THIS IS MY EARLY GUESS AND I WILL UPDATE AROUND THANKSGIVING IF I SEE ANY CHANGES IN THE ABOVE FORECAST !!!

"CORRECT OR NOT" — I AM STILL
