It is that time of year when we look forward to the Winter months as we are now more than halfway through Autumn. On the heels of a strong El Niño winter last year, the transition to a weak La Niña occurred this Fall, and this outlook will cover what that and many other factors mean for the upcoming Winter of 2016-2017. We purposely waited to release at this juncture to incorporate all available data into the outlook, and not having to rely on speculation of the pattern we are headed into by releasing it early.
We will break down the technical of observational data that contributes to this outlook, and for those less versed, an easy to understand breakdown of temperatures, precipitation, and snowfall in map form follows the technical discussion. We even have a breakdown of expected snowfall totals in a chart at the end of this outlook for 28 select cities and towns within our tri-state coverage area.
