Siberia Rapidly Building Snow Pack

A recent burst of snow in Siberia, Russia, has drastically aided in increasing overall snow cover anomalies over the northern Hemisphere, as the crucial month of October progresses into its final weeks.

It is known that there is a correlation between October Siberian snow pack anomalies and North American winter snowfall anomalies. Last year, we observed below normal snowfall anomalies in October over Siberia with a sudden burst in November. However, because October was below normal, the US ended up with a very warm and snowless winter.

This winter, there is hope. I hold confidence that Siberia is giving us some good information here as far as storytelling the upcoming winter. I will culminate this development with my other thoughts on the winter in early November.

Hey Andrew.I really think we will have a winter similiar to 1995-1996 in a post later today.It has to do with the current conditions etc.

Dillon: I do not support that forecast, it does not bode well with recent trends.

Mike: This winter certainly will be an interesting one, I can assure you that!
