Welcome to Snow Day’s Official Winter Forecast for the 2018-2019 forecast season. Here you will see a complete breakdown between our temperatures, precipitation and snowfall outlook maps.
A Winter to Remember.
Overall Picture : This winter overall for the eastern 2/3rds of the United States will be remembered as the winter that never went away. Some will receive amounts of snow they have not seen in several years and the cold will not let up, except for a few short lived warm ups in between arctic blasts especially for the northern Plains and Great Lakes States. An active storm track will set up across the Great Plains through the lower Great Lakes states providing with it amounts of snow that have not been seen in several years. Several states in this region are already at a surplus for snow and we are not even into the winter season yet. The northeastern United States will experience a pattern several times this winter where 2-3 MAJOR Nor’Easters will hit in a week and a halves time frame, along with the potential for a few major icing events as the storm systems over ride the colder air.
The southeastern United States will see a few big time arctic blasts this winter, when this happens, Alberta Clippers may reach as far south as this area delivering with it quick hitting snows. As Nor’Easters form and get ready to hit the northeast, snow and ice will also be likely over a portion of this area. The southwestern United States will experience above average precipitation, which is a much welcome relief to burn areas. The northern Plains will see mind numbing cold air, the kind of cold air that just never leaves. But with the much below average temperatures comes with it the drier then normal conditions, most of the heavier snow will stay just south of South Dakota, Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, Montana and Wyoming. The Pacific Northwestern United States will see an average winter, not too cold not too hot but just right! Florida looks to miss out on some of the larger storm systems, but we could see a couple major severe weather events roll through as nor’easters move up the eastern seaboard.
