I think there's a reasonable chance of getting at least some decent winter weather, keep those expectations low and you may be pleasantly surprised. You could bet the ranch on having less snow than last winter.

I'm thinking both PHilly and Richmond beat DC this winter--

SE ridge allows philly a little more wiggle room and once or twice when there isn't a SE ridge a storm or two ride a cF drapped across S carolina that gives RIC 8 inches and DC 2.

Good or bad I seem to recall that years past the winter talk was much more active than it has been so far this year. There have been plenty of doom and gloom forecasts in the past including chucks infamous warmest winter on record a few years ago and even then there was way more chatter leading up to winter. Here we are at Sept. 9th and hardly any talk at all other than Mitchnick struggling over whether to be pessimistic or optimistic.

I get rational but many of us came here looking for other people to talk about winter and snow no matter what time of year it was and that is what took place early on.....not anymore I guess.

Also just because we would be talking about winter now doesn't mean we can't talk about other weather stuff either...I just like talking about past events and the potential for future ones as well no matter how outrageous the prediction....It's fun to me

not struggling so much any more
I think we have a cold late NOV-DEC and are above normal snowfall
JAN goes into the shitta due to mod/strong NINA climate
FEB brings us a fluke, or maybe in MAR
if the fluke doesn't happen, or we just miss decent snows from it, we're below normal snow for the season
the wild card is, of course, the NAO
I expect -NAO mid-NOV - DEC; IF NAO can stay negative more, it will be snowier and cooler than I think for the season
conversely, if NAO stays mostly positive, we roast and my snowfall guess is way high

Kind of hard to call a bust for winter 2010-11 when it's still September 2010. Try again in February 2011 (t-minus 5 months).
