I was thinking, with all these wildfires going on and creating so much smoke, maybe it will cool off the planet and we''ll have a colder snowier winter this year!?!?
Just wishful thinking.
I need snow! It''s too hot outside!
I don't think it can get any worse than it did last year. We had about 1/2 the snow of a usual winter..50" or so..all no more than 2" at a time,then it would warm up and melt. At least I can always drive to Tug Hill where they always get snow,here it depends on which way the wind blows across Lake Ontario.
if you predict the weather anymore than 3 days ahead around this part of the country then you haven't lived here long or you are just plain lack of brains. if you don't like the weather here just wait 10 minutes.
Hate to say it greenstreak, but if the smoke would have any effect on the winter, it just might make it worse by acting like insulation by maintaining heat and not allowing the cold air to move in like it should. Not a happy thought, just my $.02.
Actually this recent heat wave is good...well maybe. The warmer the great lakes get the longer they stay open and thus the potential for lake effect snow. That is taking that it cools down enough for it to snow and you live or ride in an area that gets lake efect snow. They said this week that it was the second hotest July on record in Toronto .
When Mount St. Helens in Wa. blew, the next 2 winters were the toughest in history. With so many fires this year, it may get colder and wetter. They have no Idea how El Ninio actually affects us long term because they just discovered that phenominom in the last 5 years. Remember "The year that summer never came" Ben Franklin noted it. He is concidered the first true meterologist in history. There was a volcano that year.
well actually i read that the more particles in the air you will get more snow fall. it was in the paper one day but i cant remember exactly what was said. last year there was a lack of particles in the air from no forest fires, and few volcanoes. the more volcanoes and forest fires we have the better snowfall.
The volcano theory is true, it's happened all over the world colder winters from volcanic ash insulating us from heat from the sun, so forest fires could play a roll, as far as El ninio it's supposed to be a mild one compared to the last one in '98.
yes but if you live on the east coast, (northeast) there is more east coast winter storms because of el nino, even tho its not going to be as strong as the 98 one. in 98 with el nino we had a big ### ice storm, so with a more milder one we will probably have more snow. el nino does heat up the average winter temp by about 2 or 3 degrees, but its still around 29. 2 years are never the same. and it cant be much worse then what we had, but knowing maine we wont get any this year.
