Lots of friends are freaking out that this early snow will precipitate the Juneuary of the 04-05 winter. However:
“Neutral winters bring “normal” weather and have a bit of a twist: the biggest storms–the greatest floods, windstorms, snowstorms–when they happen (which is rare), tend to occur in neutral years….Buckle your meteorological seatbelts–its looks like a neutral winter is coming our way.”
And while I’m not one to speculate or lose hope in a great winter, it’s heartening to hear that science predicts a more normal winter. Can’t wait for some megastorms.
