Support For Cold Winter In The East Grows

Take a look at this interesting article on Judah Cohen's Winter Outlook based on Siberian Snow Cover. I remember when this study came out a few years back and I mentioned it in one of my Outlooks. His Outlook for the East matches well with my Winter Outlook and accompanying analogues this winter that strongly suggest below normal temperatures also across Southeast Lower Michigan.

Meet Judah Cohen. Director of seasonal forecasting for Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a Verisk Analytics company, Cohen has earned fame in the weather community for developing cutting edge techniques for issuing winter outlooks which show tremendous promise.

In short, Cohen relates the amount of snow cover and its rate of advance in Siberia in October to temperatures during winter in North America. The more snow in Siberia and the faster it increases he suggests, the colder it’s likely to be in the eastern U.S. This October, snow came down fast and furious in Siberia and, thus, Cohen is bullish about a harsh winter for the eastern U.S.

Rest of article here. 

Set of data numbered with Eurasian snow cover and subsequent winters in the US. Note #2, if you take this data and projections verbatim; we were doomed with a cold winter!
