Winter Weather Conference Forecasts a Good Winter

The Oregon Chapter of the American Meteorological Society presented it’s 21st Annual Winter Weather forecasting conference at OMSI. The takeaway for the season - it’s a neutral year with a slight leaning towards La Nina - which should bring average to above average snowfall to the Cascades. Meteorologist Jim Little’s forecast will delight skiers and snowboarders - with above average snow fall predicted and opening before Thanksgiving. Hydrologist / Meteorologist Kyle Dittmer - sees a decent winter of snow with a great ending - lots of snow activity in March and April! 

Watch the movie for details - and then join in the Snow Dance at the end of the video. #SnowGetDown

Keep an eye on the Oregon AMS web site for the detailed presentations.

    I love this guy predicting a lot of snow in March & April, it's almost like he has been here for the past 6 years when this has occurred over and over again. The bottom line though is any one predicting lots of snow is a friend of mine.

    Let the year begin......welcome November!!! By the way my weather prediction is for lots of rain in the valley and tons of snow up high this winter; yes I am going out on a limb for this prediction. lol

    Meadows: We like all those predictions, as long as there's snow it it!
