Snowmageddon -- They saw it coming in July

A big hats-off to the meteorologists at Accuweather. They forecast our unusually snowy winter back in July.

We had a Local Address post on it July 20, and, as I sit here blizzard-bound, I wouldn't take back a word....except maybe for the part of hoping they were right.

From Accuweather's forecast: "The overall weather pattern that has prevailed this summer is pointing to a winter very similar to that of 2002-03, when major cities on the East Coast had above-average snowfall. ... The storm track that could develop this year will bring storms up the Eastern Seaboard. This type of storm track will differ from that of the past two years, when storms tended to take a track farther west from Texas into the Great Lakes. That track into the Great Lakes brought unseasonably mild weather to the major East Coast cities, keeping them on the more rainy side of the storms. The track this year right along the Eastern Seaboard would put the major cities on the cold, wintry side of the storms."
