Winter Storm Thread: 2011-12 Season
« on: October 05, 2011, 01:23:32 PM »
It's only the first week of October, but after seeing the first Winter Storm Warnings of the winter season across the Sierra Nevada and parts of the Rockies, I figured this thread should be opened up. Any winter storm coming around that you think should be mentioned? Post about it here!

I'm personally hoping for an active winter, although not near as active as last year. The fact that La Nina is back in play suggests that, once again, New England and the Northern Plains could be facing a rough one. The Southeast may get to see some snow too, depending on the overall weather pattern.

Oh, geez... New England suffered enough last winter!  Between the middle of December and February 8th (I believe), eastern Massachusetts had steady snow (more than just flurries or a passing snow shower) once every two or three days without exception.

Believe it or not, the total snowfall accumulations weren't even close to the all-time records.  There were a couple of big storms, but the majority of the snow came with just a few inches here and a few inches there - enough to create aggravation by requiring the plows to run practically every day for two months and adding to the snowbanks - but not enough to break records.

Looks like Denver is going to get some respectable snow totals tomorrow or Wednesday...and HPC is a bit bullish on a prediction of accumulating snowfall in Pennsylvania and New York by Friday.

I guess Jim jinxed it, the other night he said he didn't buy into the EURO model showing a Nor'Easter.

Weather.com does have a good article explaining the uncertainties of snowfall and accumulating snowfall in this article.

Is places like Albany, NY reporting snow accumulations? Going by the radar it's been snowing in Upstate NY for a while now.

We;re supposed to get snow from late tonight to Satruday. High of 43 and low of 30. Right now it;'s close to 40. It's way too cold for this.

Well, before we talk about the Northeast, we need to talk about Texas! Amarillo (in the panhandle) saw 2.5 inches of snow today!!! That's a record for any one calendar day. And winter's still under a couple of months away! :o

TWC's prediction on potential power outages in the NE this weekend


I apologize for this in advance, but seriously, WTF?! :huh: :wacko: I'm just gonna jump on a large limb and say you guys in the Northeast better buckle up your seatbelts, you're in for a wild and bumpy Winter.


If this happens, I'm rating this storm 5 Brrrs  :brr: :brr: :brr: :brr: :brr:

I gotta give props to the GFS model, eventhough it lost this storm for a while, it was the first to sniff it out nearly two weeks ago.

It's going to be a cold and snowy start as expected for a La Niņa winter, but this start is pushing it to the extreme.  I can only imagine what the Northeast is thinking right now as they see a major winter storm in October.  It might be something like this promo some of you all may remember:

No place on Earth has better weather - promo (Snowstorm 4of4+)

No, he didn't almost curse this time around, but he was in the middle of a phone interview while doing the live shot. The clip attached is pre-recorded from the time it happened around 12:33pm
