    "Those who think that winter 2006-2007 is going to remain mild are in for a shock...Winter is likely to come with a vengeance. A week from now, we'll start seeing truly cold air across much of the country, and we expect this change to last." -AccuWeather.com Chief Long-Range Forecaster Joe Bastard


    Could the United States be in for a very, very cold winter? The answer according to Accuweather is "YES". In fact this winter "could" be simular to very cold and severe winters such as 1965-1966, 1977-1978. As one expert has noted "There are indications that this winter could parallel severe winters of the past. Even should we not see an extremely cold and snowy conclusion to winter, you can be sure that by the end of the month, when those in the Northeast are shoveling out their driveways and sidewalks, the mild weather we're experiencing now will be a distant memory" -(AccuWeather.com Chief Long-Range Forecaster Joe Bastard). That could mean back to back blizzards in the American Northeast and unusually cold weather from Washington state to Florida. Of course nobody knows for sure but the winter of 2007 could go down in the books as a very cold, and not very warm, winter. One long-range forecasting expert said that it is impossible to tell how much snow will fall in different areas of the nation and exactly how long the severe cold could last. However he did point out that "if the weather pattern reaches its full potential, the dramatic change from warmth to cold could result in "one of the top-five coldest 30-day stretches in the past half century.". So enjoy the warm weather while it is still here (if you are on the east coast).

    One day it is going to be a really cold winter. The next day it is going to be a warm, mild winter.

    They don't know nothing.

    I don't hardly even check the weather much anymore, just let the good Lord handle it.

    It finally happened...
    We have snow on our front lawn!

    And the kids had a 2 hour delay.
    But the sun is out, and it is melting...

    ==I don't know how it is in Missouri but that is typical North Carolina weather. I often laugh a military families who move here because they are shocked by the quick and dramatic changes in weather that are common here. It can be 40 degrees on Monday with a chance of snow and Wednesday can be 60 degrees with a chance of severe thunderstorms. It can be 70 degrees in January, 50 degrees in May (I have seen it snow in May). The poor weather guys around this area have lost many on-air bets when their forecasts were wrong. And the situations those guys get themselves in...:laugh:

    It's been beautiful here in Cleveland (40's - 50's) for the past month. Today it's in the 20's, but will be rebounding supposedly back into the 50's next week. This is typical El Nino ("The Nino" :D ) pattern.

    I had ten degrees this morning. I've shoveled several feet of snow, several times, I've had to re-tape my doors & windows, I've been involved in one car accident & have witnessed several others due to black ice. My cat is very hesitant to go out, & I had to dig my trash cans out of a foot of ice.

    I'm glad that the warm weather will end. I was wondering if it would.

    We had a record high of 73F last weekend. While this may seem good, we do need a certain amount of hours below 40F or the trees won't fruit (my co-worker responded, "Meh! We can always eat Twinkies").

    Also, our reservoirs depend on snow melt to maintain their summer volume.

    I have to agree with you there. They get paid to guess a lot, so I find it easier to just look outside and see what the weather looks like. :)

    if it's cold, I get a coat, if not, I don't. If it looks like rain, I bring my umbrella.

    I can guess as god as they can!

    Jamie

    BTW, it's cold here in the NE today, it's like 46 degrees.. :laugh:

    It's been strange up where I am, too. Well, we've got 28 as our high today, and a couple more 28's forecasted, with a few days in between in the 30's and 40's.

    But we finally had snow, and my car is finally covered with it.
    It just stopped an hour or so ago. The sun is alternately out and away.

    Beats driving down the highway and seeing a lone car or a couple of cars whizz past half-covered with snow, because they passed an area or the driver lives a few miles east or west where it was snowing.
