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. :)

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.

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?

-christmas-day-112705322--abc-news-topstories.html


Records were shattered in Erie, Pennsylvania, when 34 inches of snow fell on Christmas Day, making it Erie's snowiest day on record.

As of this afternoon, Erie has had a total of 54.5 inches of snow since midnight Christmas Day -- the greatest two-day snowfall on record for Erie.

Thought it was supposed to be a NEUTRAL NINO YEAR?

It's a high of 10 here today... got cold early this year.

Yuck. It went from comfortable last week to frigid this week, and into the foreseeable future on weather.com. 3 degrees by me last night.

They're saying that most of the upper states will have a colder and wetter than average next 3 months, and most of the middle and southern states will have an average and warmer/dryer than normal season.

Of course, the Chicagoland area needs to be one of the two places on the map that have a big ole dark spot indicating the highest chance for greater than average precipitation. Great time for my car to start leaking 1 quart of oil every 60 or so miles. I might have to break down and get a car loan for the first time in 17 years so I don't end up losing my job... or end up getting stranded on the express way when it's -5 degrees out without a cell phone.


Good news, Wishy. Assuming you live at least 100-150 miles south of Chicago, you shouldn't have too bad a winter. I don't remember how far south you are.

Guess you missed the part where it said it is a RECORD, as in NOT COMMON AT ALL?

You'd have to be able to get your head out of your ass for that though.

I should have gone with me first instinct. Reading all the "neutral nino" crap had me questioning myself...

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

We had 8 total and it's still here. Coldest damn winter I can remember. Kids have been off school all week. I have a feeling the rain we are supposed to get Sun/Mon might be more snow.

Guarantee our heat/electric bill is going to be over $500. It this keeps up 'till March we'll just sign over the car...it'll be cheaper...
