I'm gonna throw in 1-2 ice events for Atlanta due to the timing of a weak storm from California and some cold air off a sharp Arctic invasion. They will be small events but as we know in Atlanta it will not take much to shut the city down.
Judging by the early arctic out breaks so far, I hope the snowfall here in Cumming, Ga will be better then our two last warm La-Nina winters. 2010-2011 winter was one of the best with several two" snowstorms including one 5" snowstorm that actually stuck to the ground for 3 days because of the then moderate El-Nino. Maybe this neutral winter may go against the rules. I am hoping.
Hi all. I am from Atlanta (Dunwoody in particular) and I am starting to become skeptical whether or not we will get any snow this year. So far it has been just another warm winter. Just like last year. Overall the main question is -- Will Atlanta get 1 or more days of accumulative snow this winter??
brad...we are going through all the cities and updates to reflect the change in the el nino status. Thanks for finding us...sure looks like a fun winter in the east this year with the NAO and AO becoming the main factors now
Good evening Rob, I look at the site almost every day, winter weather is fascinating to me. I live about 20 miles north of Raleigh NC. The latest outlook I can find is Oct 20th. Was wondering how the snow forcast is looking for my area since we have the neutral elnino,and -nao,-ao right now I think. I'm new to this so bare with me. And when can we hopefully expect our first snow!!! Thank you and your team yall are doing a outstanding job.
Im not from ga but ive been here for three years my baby is now big enough to play in snow but im not sure it will snow this year. I live in snellville ga do you think it will snow this year so that my family can see snow since we are from Miami and we never get snow.
Thanks Rob Guarino for a nice thread and it looks like one on the way for Chattanooga too. I'm from Duluth, MN so I know long winters that are not found in the MidWest or South but it gets cold here a lot at night where I live now in TN and some days but not like Duluth where 20 below in the day is common some years. I lived on the Lake with my parents and it is milder and less snow but still cold through June 1st.
Hi Mark, the poster, You are three houses away from me. Thanks for telling me about this site. It's so true where we live in Chattanooga area there can be 2" reported at the airport yet most places other than downtown will be 8-10" so we do not get a normal average or forecast here. It's always much colder than downtown or the airport and a lot more snow. We had snow showers last week at 3am while our mountains had drifts two stories high to the east one hour drive above 2500 feet.
I wish they would move the reporting center so it shows what really goes on here in winter. We have a month longer winter than Atlanta but going by the airport not so and it is often 30* colder than Atlanta too because fronts stall just south of Dalton, GA a lot or at least the cold air. It's cold here now 49* my house but 56* airport.
I'm a student in Met and my grandfather is retired but was a Met and he says the Eastern US is in for cold this winter and a good part of the West too in CO area. I think forecasters here seem to agree.
