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, AccuWeather.com 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.

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

According to an updated winter forecast released today by AccuWeather.com, 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. AccuWeather.com 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.

The running 30 day mean is about to take another drop. One sees how CYCLICAL the overall pattern is with an up and down, biased up when we are warming, down when we are cooling. But the site I posted Friday will be fun to watch. Given what we are looking at globally to end the month, we are going to see a fall to .1 below normal in the running 30 day mean by the end of the month.

So on March 2, when the data comes in, see if I am right

ciao for now ****

Joe Bastardi: Three of Next Five Winters Could be as Cold or Colder
Wednesday, February 2nd 2011, 9:53 PM GMT
Co2sceptic (Site Admin)
This winter is on track to become the coldest for the nation as a whole since the 1980s or possibly even the late 1970s. According to AccuWeather.com Chief Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi, three or four out of the next five winters could be just as cold, if not colder.

He is worried that next winter, for example, will be colder than this one.

Bastardi adds that with the U.S. in the middle of one of its worst recessions in its history and the price of oil in question, he is extremely concerned about the prospect for more persistent cold weather in the coming years putting increased financial hardship on Americans.

"Cold is a lot worse than warm," Bastardi said, "and that's why your energy bill goes up during the winter time: because of the fact that it takes a lot to heat a house."

While there are many different factors that are playing into Bastardi's forecast, one of the primary drivers is La Niña and the trends that have been observed in winters that follow the onset of a La Niña.

Meteorologist expects monster La Nina - Drastic cooling

Southern Hemisphere sea ice now approaching record high levels

25 Aug 10 - Although Northern Hemisphere LAND MASSES had their hottest May-July on record, says meteorologist Joe Bastardi, the globe as a whole did not.

The warmth ON LAND is a by-product of the years of warm Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and El Nino, says Bastardi. The land kept warming after the water began to cool. It's "sort of like high tide in back bay occurring after it had occurred on the beach (oceans) and the tide is about to go out."

"If one uses common sense, one would understand that land masses with warm water next to them for years would warm greatly," says Bastardi.

Southern Hemisphere sea ice now approaching record high levels

However, "the expansion of the Southern Hemisphere sea ice, now approaching record high levels, ought to tell you something about the oceans immediately around the sea ice," says Bastardi. This large mass of water is cooling and has cooled most dramatically in the area where it is warmest (the tropical pacific).

La Nina Cooling May Mean More Snow and Storms, Higher Fuel Prices for U.S by Brian K. Sullivan

Blizzards, droughts, floods and a surge in hurricanes may be in store as a cooling trend in the Pacific known as La Nina alters weather around the world and threatens to boost prices for heating fuels and crops.

The chance of stormier months to come for the northern U.S. may bring some volatility to the natural gas market in the next few weeks, said Cameron Horwitz, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity Inc. in Houston.

In 1995, following one of the most active Atlantic hurricane seasons on record, a La Nina combined with other weather patterns to bring about one of the snowiest winters for New York and New England, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration records. Heating oil prices rose 14 percent and natural gas jumped 52 percent that year.

The coming winter “may get off to a really fast start, and by that I mean there may be a monster of a storm relatively early this year, if not in late November then in December,” said Joe Bastardi, chief meteorologist at AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania. “I mean a blockbuster near the Eastern Seaboard.”

So far it’s been a really cold winter for much of Europe, and so you’d think we’d be due for a little relief. Think again!

Although western Europe will enjoy some milder temps this weekend, it isn’t going to last long. Already next week the bitter cold will be back. This is just the kind of winter weather that not only paralyzes economic activity, but also wreaks havoc on streets and highways – freeze-thaw-freeze cycles that rip asphalt surfaces apart. Expect major damage this winter and huge potholes later on.

Joe Bastardi’s latest video Europe Gets Hit by Extreme Cold is not good news. By Tuesday night the cold will spread over Central and Western Europe. Bastardi:

La Nina Vs. El Nino

Sea surface temperatures play a major role in global weather and nowhere is that more evident then in El Nino and La Nina patterns. These type of patterns often lead to weather extremes, some of which can be seen in our own backyards. Sea surface temperatures indicate that we'll have a La Nina this winter, which could mean a season of weather extremes across parts of the United States.

What is La Nina and El Nino?

La Nina is described as cooler-than-normal sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean, near the equator off the west coast of South America. El Nino is like La Nina's brother, the totally opposite and attention grabbing brother. This is described as warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures in the same area of the Pacific Ocean.
