It’s one of our industry’s favorite pastimes: guessing what the winter will bring! What do the scientists have to say?
This week has definitely had the first real chill in the air of the fall. Vermont has ski area openings this weekend, snow fell this week just north of us in the Catskills: we daresay winter is on the horizon even though we have not trick-or-treated yet.
As professionals, we would be lying if we said we were not hoping for SOME bad winter weather. Our livelihoods are dependent on some snow and ice during the non-green seasons. But most everyone else feels better thinking there won’t be much cold and snow this year.
Hot off the presses, the National Weather Service just released their long range winter forecast. Bottom line: warmer, but wetter in the Mid-Atlantic. So it looks like Bergen and Rockland Counties can hold off on one layer of clothing, but keep some extra salt on hand.
