The Climate Prediction Center has issued a new forecast for the fall and winter.

Seasonal forecasting is not an exact science by any means but each month the Climate Prediction Center, a United States government forecast office, issues a look at the weather as much as one year in advance.  The next two seasons usually have more forecast accuracy and today's forecast puts a new light on what is expected for the remainder of this year into early 2010.  The Southeast is expected to average normal to slightly below normal for the fall and winter months.  Precipitation is expected to be heavy over Florida and generally above normal from the Carolinas southward into the Gulf Coast.  Meanwhile the northwestern portion of the United States is expected to have a dry and mild winter.  In North Carolina we should expect temperatures to average slightly below normal with normal to above normal rainfall.  Last year North Carolina has near normal temperatures and rainfall.

    I believe this is the winter we will have a parade of large snowstorms, especially the way el nino is setting up. I know accuweather is calling for North Carolina, Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey to have have a very cold and snowy winter like 2002-2003. January 2003 we had the :"Blizzard of the Decade" dropping almost a foot of snow along the NC Coast! Bring on the cold and snow!
