Winter May Start Out Chilly

Current forecasts suggest an early start to winter this year.

An early start to winter is expected across the Southeast this year.  Temperatures in November should average slightly below the long-term averages.  The chill is expected to linger into December with temperatures once again expected to be slightly below normal.  New forecasts issued this week by the National Weather Service would suggest that temperatures may actually return to above normal readings after the first of the year.  If these forecasts hold up we may need to get our snow early this winter or we may miss out.  Current indications point to much colder than normal conditions will develop across the northern Plains and Rockies into much of central to western Canada while we warm up during the latter half of the winter.  I'll continue to update our winter forecast in the weeks ahead.

    Well Alex, I use long range forecast models but I unlike many meteorologists, have lived in NC my whole life. I know the weather patterns much better and also I use scientific data with my common sense and deducting reason.

    I do not know the specifics for Christmas but the chance MAY be greater than normal. I believe we will have slightly above average snowfall this winter, the best chances will be late November, December, an mid January. I believe any other time chances aren't as great.

    Hey guys, this is my update. November and December will be much below normal in the temp department and near average precip. January will average near normal, slightly below, with February and March going above normal. I expect our first chance of snow could occur as early as Thanksgiving. Snow chances will be best throughout December and then again in mid-January. Stay Tuned!
