WINTER OUTLOOK 2009 DATE: 01/17/2009 07:24:46

***** MID JANUARY THRU MID MARCH WINTER OUTLOOK ***

JANUARY WILL AVERAGE WELL BELOW NORMAL TEMP WISE WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF NORMAL SNOWFALL BUT MORE LIKELY BELOW NORMAL SNOWFALL FOLLOWED BY A LESS COLD FEBURARY WITH ABOVE NORMAL SNOWFALL … BUT AS I STATED EARLIER THIS SEASON JANUARY SHOULD STAY MOSTLY COLD AND DRY WITH A LESS COLD BUT STILL COLD ENOUGH FEBURARY THAT SHOULD BRING US ABOVE NORMAL SNOW TOTALS BEFORE A SLIGHTLY COOLER THAN AVERAGE AND ALSO WETTER THAN AVERAGE SPRING WEATHER PATTERN DEVELOPS IN MARYLAND BY MID MARCH AND CONTINUES RIGHT THRU APRIL !!!

SUMMARY: BEST CHANCE FOR A HEAVY SNOW IS EARLY FEBURARY AND THE BEST CHANCE FOR EXTREMELY COLD TEMPS IS FOR THE REST OF JANUARY BUT WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE WE SHALL WIND UP WITH SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPS (1 TO 2 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE FOR THE WHOLE WINTER SEASON) AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL SNOWFALL (BETWEEN 20 AND 25 INCHES FOR THE WHOLE SEASON)

NOTES: (1) A HOT BUT NOT TO HOT SUMMER LOOKS LIKELY FOR MOST OF MARYLAND WITH HIGH TEMPS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 86 AND 94 ON A SOMEWHAT REGULAR BASIS MEANING LESS THAN FIVE DAYS THIS SUMMER IN MARYLAND WILL HAVE HIGH TEMPS OF 95 OR GREATER (2) AS FAR AS HURRICANES GO, RIGHT NOW I EXPECT 8 OR 9 NAMED STORMS WITH 5 OR 6 BEING HURRICANES BUT ONLY EXPECT 2 MAJOR HURRICANES THIS SEASON IN THE ATLANTIC BASIN WITH AN INCREASED THREAT FOR A TROPICAL SYSTEM TO MAKE LANDFALL ON THE MIDDLE ATLANTIC COAST ANYWHERE FROM CAPE HATTERAS TO CAPE COD BUT MOST LIKELY IN THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER (3) AND LASTLY I EXPECT ATLEAST A WEAK OR MODERATE EL NINO TO START TO DEVELOP DURING THE LATER FALL AND EARLY WINTER MONTHS OF NEXT YEAR (2010) … IS THAT INTERESTING ENOUGH FOR YA ???
