Winter Weather Forecast 2014-2015

TO PUT IT SIMPLY, THE 2014-15 WINTER WILL BE HARSH, VERY COLD, AND SNOWY. LOTS OF SNOW IN THE NORTH CENTRAL STATES (MT, MN, WI, MI) WITH EQUIVALENT OR GREATER TOTALS THAN LAST YEAR. LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL BE MUCH GREATER THIS YEAR THAN LAST ALONG ALL THE GREAT LAKES AND THEIR PERSPECTIVE STATE TARGETS, DUE TO ELEVATED WIND CONDITIONS. THE COLD WILL DESCEND EARLY AND REPEAT IT'S INSULT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THE NORTHEASTERN STATES WILL HAVE MUCH GREATER SNOW TOTALS AND LONGER LASTING COLD SPELLS THEN THAT OF LAST YEAR WITH THE SEVER COLD CONTINUING BEYOND SPRING. FOR ALL THE NORTH-CENTRAL AND NORTHEASTERN STATES WINTER WILL CONTINUE LONG AFTER IT SHOULD HAVE ENDED.

ALONG THE EAST COAST THE WINTER'S COLD WILL DESCEND EARLY AS WELL, BUT DUE TO THE WARMER WATERS OF THE ATLANTIC THE SNOW TOTALS WILL BE HUG ONLY WHERE THE NEXT NOR'EASTER FOCUSES IT'S INSULT. OTHERWISE, STATES FROM VIRGINIA TO FLORIDA, ICE WILL BE A REPEATED NIGHTMARE. HOWEVER, GOING INLAND THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE CHANGING FROM ICE TO SNOW THROUGHOUT THE WINTER WITH SOME STORMS HAVING 2'' TO 4'' ICE ACCUMULATIONS, BUT SINCE THE VERY COLD WILL ALSO BE DESCENDING THE MORE NORTHERN, EAST COAST STATES, WILL QUICKLY TURN OVER TO SNOW WITH POTENTIALLY VERY LARGE SNOW TOTALS.

FLORIDA AND THROUGHOUT THE SOUTH WILL BE DEALING WITH REPEATED CHARGES OF FIRST MODERATE TEMPS AND THEN AN INSULT OF VERY COLD CONDITIONS. PIPES WILL FREEZE AND OCCASIONAL ICE ACCUMULATIONS WILL MAKE IT, AT TIMES, A NIGHTMARE. FLORIDA'S CITRUS CROP WILL BE UNDER A MUCH GREATER THREAT THIS WINTER SEASON THAN LAST YEAR WITH A DEEPER DESCENT OF THE COLD AND MORE FRIGID TEMPS.

TEXAS AND THROUGHOUT THE MID-WEST (OK, AR, MO, TN, KY) WILL ENJOY A REPEAT OF SNOW STORM AFTER SNOW STORM WITH A DESCENT OF THE COLD FAR INTO THE SOUTH. THE ENTIRE COUNTRY WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH FAR BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATURES WITH SOME EXCEPTIONS (CA, OR, WA, AZ). HOWEVER THE MOUNTAINS OF THESE STATE WILL ENJOY ABOVE AVERAGE SNOWFALL AND FRIGID TEMPS. CALIFORNIA'S MOUNTAINS SHOULD RECOVER IT'S SNOW PACK FOR THE FOLLOWING SUMMER WATER SUPPLY NEEDS.

OVERALL: FAR COLDER THAN AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND ABOVE AVERAGES OF SNOWFALL!

    

As further evidence of what is coming an investigation of previous La Nina winters support's my forecast for very cold weather, but one cannot draw any conclusions about snowfall from a La Nina winter. However, it should be noted that 2010 was the year the NFL lost a football stadium in December due to snowfall. Below is a consolidation of winter temps for the 2010-2011 winter provided by NOAA:



Data collected throughout the year used to forecast this harsh winter:

* Canadian Geese migration cycles!
* Firefly mating cycles and activity!
* Other birds migration cycles!
* Wooly worm migration cycle, hair color and growth, and frequency!
* Reptilian activity and feeding habits!
* K9 and other local mammal (deer) activity and hair growth!
* Fall colors!
* July-August 2014 stretch of cold temps into the south!
* Very low fall precipitation!
