Northeast due for cold and snowy winter according to forecasters

Lake Information

When you live in the Northeast and the temperature starts to cool, you start to think about the winter months, and hope for a light winter.

We checked with three major sources to find out, what was their prediction for the winter of 2016 to 2017, and here’s what we found.

Prediction

Farmers’ Almanac

Ice cold and Snow filled

AccuWeather

Snowy winter on tap for East

National Weather Service

Northeast could see big winters with copious amounts of snowfall.

 

Before you read these forecasts, we like the following disclaimer that the National Weather Service used.

Warning: Long-range forecasts are rarely accurate and most of last season’s forecasts were incorrect.

 

Farmers Almanac:

Winter Weather 2017

The Farmers’ Almanac official winter weather forecast is calling for an exceptionally cold winter season in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and New England, as well as some cold fronts potentially reaching as far south as Florida.

According to the Farmers’ Almanac, while winter officially starts on December 21, 2016, the Farmers’ Almanac predictions point to some snow and cold conditions in mid-November in the Northeast, Great Lakes, and Midwest. However, the good news is that the frigidly cold temperatures really won’t take hold until much later in the season.

The Farmers’ Almanac, forewarns of a mixed bag of wintry weather for both December and January. But it’s really February when the frigid temperatures take hold (northern tier states could see ambient air temperatures as low as 40 degrees below zero!).

Get the snow blowers ready in the East as an active storm track will deliver above-normal precipitation to the Northeast and New England states throughout most of the winter, especially February (see above!).

AccuWeather: Snowy winter on tap for East

AccuWeather Winter 2017

El Niño officially came to an end in early June, and experts are calling for a La Niña to develop in its footsteps. La Niña is the cool counterpart to El Niño, characterized by unusually low ocean temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific.

Transitioning into the fall, warmth could hold on late in the season across the eastern United States. This will give way to colder temperatures and heavier snows as the winter progresses. The influence of La Niña could lead to some big East Coast systems during the second half of the season. "Areas like southern New York State and northeastern Pennsylvania that missed out on snow last year could see higher-than-normal totals this winter,"

See the Article on-ine.

National Weather 2017

The good government scientists are predicting that the upcoming winter will be strongly affected by La Niña conditions. As you can see in the precipitation forecast maps below, this would mean that, in general, the mountains and ski areas in the northern half of the United States will see more favorable ski conditions than ski areas to the south. The ski areas in the PNW and in the Northeast could see big winters with copious amounts of snowfall.
