There will be fire and brimstone and Earth will be destroyed!... in several billion years!----------------------------------------- "Well, so long Earth. Thanks for the air... and what-not." -Philip J. Fry


I just checked every site with a forecast for this winter, and they all agree it will be wet, but with mild temperatures. And the models mostly say that it is a Neutral Nino kind of year, so they think not much activity.

They did say the deep south would be warm and dry this year, though. Well, half right.

Also, interestingly enough, there was a massive blizzard in 1717, and 1816 was the year it never got warm that summer. 1913 and 1922 also saw massive totals of 47 and 36 in storms. Late teens years are notorious for turbulence.

Big Snow may not be this year (although my arthritis is already in suck mode), but I have a feeling it's coming soon.

Therefore, I am going to use this thread to see if any of us are any good at prognosticating...




I am guessing that there will be a major snow storm in 2020 with at least 30 in of snow somewhere in the US.


So, pick a year and pick a snow total between 20-80 inches.

Feel free to go as far into the future as your zen allows

If we are still here to find out....

I think 30 inches happens pretty much every year in the Upper Peninsula. And Alaska.
IIRC UP record is about 400 inches total for winter.

We did just have a few in the last 6 or 7 years that were at least 24" around Chicago. When I lived in Wisconsin south of Milwaukee there was even more snow than the usual Chicago winter. Big snows aren't a big deal where we live. Gimme all the snow you want.

I rather enjoyed last winter. It was relatively warm compared to the deep freezes and times where it would be below zero for a week at a time, and quite a few nights were nearly 20 below without factoring wind chill. I love hearing we're going to have a mild temp winter. :)

Continental US, tough guy. Alaska is a whole different climate.

And I'm not talking accumulated, I mean ONE storm, obviously.

2010 saw 32 in one, so It's actually not that common. Here are some others...

2003-20
1996-48
1993-50
1978-27
1977-40
1974-24
1967-23

I am a bit dismayed at the lack of information available on the interwebs for you beach people to learn about snowfall. 2 likely reasons for this lack. For us, snow is just weather, No Big Deal. And when snow cones, our hands don't fill with tweeter rants, but shovels to get 'er done.

You list 2 events since 1997, and claim snowfall is uncommon. A severely incomplete list has 13 events in those 19 years. You list another 5 since 1968, instead of 16. The local weather in your neighborhood does not represent the whole of the U.S.

Interesting that while the interwebs were growing around 1990-2005 there is more information, and then the novelty seems to have faded.

And most of the winters lately are too cold for snow.

Now that you've overanalyzed and nit picked to death, are you going to hazard a guess?

About whether or when you'll get a big snowfall where you live?

Sure, why not?

Big snowfall for you mid-December. You'll have a white Xmas.

That, and $3.25 will get you a cup of coffee!

EEEEERNT. Sorry, you lose this round. It rarely EVER snows in December here, let alone accumulates.
We tend to get our worst snows in February or March.

Also, hubby and I can't drink coffee. Green Tea, please.


Okay, let's make this easier...


What will be the total snowfall for the largest storm this winter in the continental US?

I'll go with ....17

Well, let me know about your Xmas weather! It'll be fun either way to find out.

Hmmm.... big snow for the year? I'm betting 20". That's not in "one day" but in one "snowfall" which could be over three days.

BTW- Alaska IS in the "continental" USA. It isn't in the "contiguous" USA ... in other words, its OCONUS. So are we including Alaska, or not?
