The Official 2018 Winter Outlook

Here is the full version of my Winter Outlook 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Winter Outlook. Below you will find the bottom line forecast followed by a detailed video on how I came up with my prediction this year. 

So lets get to it.....

Expected Temperatures:

Expected Snowfall:

Winter Highlights:

  • There will be a lot of activity this winter but it will be confined to a few key areas
    • The hardest hit spots should be the Pacific northwest, Northern Rocky Mountains, and the Northern Plains into interior New England.
    • Winter should come on quick this year in December which will be a contrast compared to the last two winters.
  • For New England
    • Not exceptionally cold but very snowy especially in the interior.
    • Areas near the coast should see above average snow but the core of the heaviest snowfall relative to averages stays more inland due to influences from a ridge of high pressure.
    • Ski areas should do great 
  • For the Mid-Atlantic
    • A mixed bag this year
    • Average temperatures for the northern Mid-Atlantic and slightly above average for southern Mid-Atlantic (Balt/Wash, Phili)
    • Expect average snowfall overall with slightly above average to the north and below average to the south
    • Overall similar to last winter in terms of snowfall amounts but slightly cooler and the chance for areas to the NW to see enhanced snowfall (edge of the light blue)
  • For the Southeast
    • Warmer than normal temperatures with limited snowfall this year
    • This will be due to a persistent ridge of high pressure working its way onshore frequently 
    • Non eventful overall
  • For the Pacific Northwest into the Rocky Mountains
    • Very active this year with well above normal snowfall
  • For the Central US into the Great Lakes Region
    • Average winter to the south but cold and snowy to the north
    • Coldest air relative to averages should be in the Northern Plains into the Great Lakes this year.
