Not so fast says meteorologist Joe D’Aleo.
…This is likely to fall far short of the top 5 this year, but the trends in the big cities and hemisphere are up not down. AND the winter will turn more active given the redevelopment of blocking.
Most of the traditional La Nina snowy areas will do better starting the rest of this month. Last winter most of the action came early ending in early February. This year will be the opposite. DC will likely have to wait for the next El nino (2012/13?) to cash in. But then again AGWers have it covered either way.
