With everyone enjoying our warmer than normal summer, one can’t help but speculate as to what winter of 2010-2011 will be like for our area. This is what Theodore White, astrometeorologist has to say:

“From my long-range astronomical calculations for North America, I've forecasted 2010-11 to be a very strong El Nino year. This is caused mainly by the activity of the Sun, which will undergo a historic solar maximum that will bring to an end the 36-year global warming phase that began in the year 1980 while opening a new global cooling phase that will get underway by the year 2017. In the meantime, I am also forecasting that the years of late 2009 to 2016 will feature some of the world's wildest climate and weather events of the early 21st century that, by the mid-2010s, will have seen the close of the current 36-year phase of global warming that Earth has experienced since 1980. By 2010, in my estimation, we will have entered the 30th year of Solar-forced global warming. These last six-to-seven-and-a-half years, from 2010 to about 2017, will likely feature some of the warmest global temperatures recorded in the entire 36th year global warming cycle. This cycle, like that of global cooling on its way in the decades ahead - is directly caused by the Sun

The Pacific Northwest had a less-than-stellar winter in terms of skiing last year as seen in the Vancouver Olympics.

A La Nina weather pattern this year, however, could mean stormier weather for the 2010-2011 season.

It can be difficult to forecast just how much more moisture a wetter-than-normal winter will bring, Expert Senior Meteorologist and West Coast resident Clark said. For the Pacific Northwest, though, Clark is predicting that precipitation will be "normal to well-above normal." He described above-normal precipitation as 20 percent or more that is typically received in the region.

The major metropolitan areas of the mid-Atlantic that were pummeled with snow last year will get a break this winter, but that doesn't mean there will be no snow to shovel. In contrast, Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis could be in the heaviest snow zone this upcoming winter.

Winter's Worst Cold and Snow

Overall, Chief Long-Range Meteorologist Joe Bastardi is predicting that the worst of winter's cold and snow will be from the Pacific Northwest into the northern Plains and western Great Lakes. That will put cities like Portland and Seattle that escaped with a very nice winter last year, colder and snowier this year. Fargo and Minneapolis to Green Bay will also receive above-normal winter snowfall.

Other cities predicted to receive above-normal winter snowfall include Chicago, Omaha, Minneapolis, Detroit, Cleveland, Seattle and Portland.

Bastardi predicts severe cold will hit Alaska and western and central Canada.

"The Canadian winter will be as harsh as last year's was gentle," Bastardi said.

Britain 'in for another big freeze winter' by Stephen Adams

The UK media still ignore Piers Corbyn's long range weather forecasts at and instead use the "crystal ball" service from Jonathan Powell of Positive Weather Solutions, why!

WeatherAction is the ONLY service that can produce long range forecasts with any accuracy, and it achieves this using the effect of predictable solar activity. To use any other service that relies on any other method just DOES NOT WORK as our climate is controlled by the SUN. Well done to Jonathan Powell for having a go but unless you use the service from Piers Corbyn your onto a loser in the long term.

Britain 'in for another big freeze winter' by Stephen Adams

Britain is in for another bitterly-cold winter, with widespread snow and Siberian temperatures, according to a forecaster who claims to have accurately predicted last year's big freeze.

Jonathan Powell of Positive Weather Solutions said the country should prepare itself for "back-to-back" harsh winters.

Last winter was the coldest for 31 years, with the average UK-wide temperature from 1 December to 24 February being only 34.7F (1.5C), compared to the long-term average of 38.6F (3.7C).

The mercury plunged as low as -8.1F (-22.3C) in Altnaharra, Scotland, while Benson, Oxon, recorded 10.8F (-11.8C).

The Met Office had predicted there was only a one-in-seven chance of a cold winter, which was caused by strong anti-cyclonic activity bringing persistent icy winds off the continent, and keeping milder Atlantic breezes at bay.

It has been one of the coldest Decembers for decades and now forecasters say a white Christmas is definitely going to happen this year.

Arctic winds are expected to bring more freezing weather from Thursday with some areas of the country seeing up to eight inches of snow.

And looking further into the future, it looks like most of the country will be swathed in the white stuff on December 25.

Jonathan Powell, a forecaster with Positive Weather Solutions, said: "Our models are showing we will see a white Christmas.

"The most likely places to have one are Scotland, north-east England, the east coast, the South East and London. It's going to happen."

A strong La Nina weather pattern will keep the cold and stormy weather in place across the Capital Region into at least February. Photo:

According to an updated winter forecast released today by, a strong La Nina in the equatorial eastern Pacific will continue to cause extreme weather for the remainder of the winter of 2011 across much of the country. The difficult part of the forecast is where the extreme weather will occur and whether or not it will occur with regularity.

Despite some reports that La Nina was weakening, the current La Nina is still going strong and many forecasters predict that it will persist into the Spring and potentially even the Summer and Fall of 2011. long range forecasters believe that due to the strong La Nina, colder than normal temperatures will continue to affect the eastern states, particularly the northeast and the Capital Region of upstate New York, into early February. Continued cold outbreaks are expected through the end of January, with the deepening snowpack primed to make the outbreaks even more extreme.

Coldest winter in 1,000 years on its way

After the record heat wave this summer, Russia's weather seems to have acquired a taste for the extreme.

Forecasters say this winter could be the coldest Europe has seen in the last 1,000 years.

The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe.

So far, the results have been lower temperatures: for example, in Central Russia, they are a couple of degrees below the norm.

Although the forecast for the next month is only 70 percent accurate, I find the cold winter scenario quite likely,” Vadim Zavodchenkov, a leading specialist at the Fobos weather center, told RT. “We will be able to judge with more certainty come November. As for last summer's heat, the statistical models that meteorologists use to draw up long-term forecasts aren't able to predict an anomaly like that.

At first glance it looks like a graphic from a Discovery Channel programme about a distant ice age. But this astonishing picture shows the world as it is today - with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.

The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America was in the grip of a severe winter storm.

The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.

VANCOUVER -- Don’t remove your snow tires just yet, because a severe cold snap that may be followed by a snow dump is on the way.

Global TV meteorologist Mark Madryga said the shivery days coming up could be record breaking.

Environment Canada is calling for a low temperature of minus seven for Thursday, and minus 8 for Friday, both of which would break records for coldness, if the forecast comes to pass. The previous cold record for Feb. 24 is minus 6.5 in 1993 and the average minimum temperature is two degrees. For Feb. 25, the previous cold record is minus 5.2, also in 1993, and the average minimum temperature is two degrees.

Sunday morning it got down to minus four at the airport, with the record low at minus six.

“All of the weather charts are strongly showing Arctic air punching down over us,” Madryga said. “We’ll probably get a lot colder than minus four by Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

“We could be flirting with minus 10 on Thursday and Friday, along with a strong wind that will make it feel even colder.”
