Early 2010 — 2011 Winter Forecast

By Paul Yeager, author of Weather Whys: Facts, Myths, and Oddities

We’re still in the throes of summer, with the worst of hurricane season still to come, but that hasn’t stopped AccuWeather from releasing its initial winter 2010-2011 forecast for the United States.

The forecast is for a much different year from last winter, with the harshest conditions from the Pacific Northwest to the northern Plains and much drier conditions across the South.

I’ll post more information about winter forecasts as they become available.

    • I’m no long-range forecaster…so I’m afraid I won’t be much help for 2011 at this point. Once forecasts are issued, though, I’ll report them here.

  2. what is the winter weather for 2011

  3. I appreciate your weather forecast. I live around the Sacramento, CA area. I noticed northern CA above Sacramento was included in the “worst of winter” pattern, and Southern CA, below Sacramento, in the drier pattern. Would you have any idea the forecast for the Sacramento area? Wetter and cooler than normal, drier and warmer than normal or average? I look forward to the rainy season in the Sac Valley as well as the snow in the mountains.

    • I’m no long-range forecasting expert; I typically present other forecasters information as it relates to long-range information. With a well-defined La Nina, my experience in the past is that the Sacramento typically has average to above-average precipitation during the winter. Certainly, areas farther to the north should do well, such as the Redding and the mountains near that region, and areas farther to the south will not have as much precipitation as last year.

  4. Snow? YAY!
