Weather prediction is always interesting in that while weather does show patterns it seems that the forecast isn't always 100% correct. Hence weather prediction is... well, a prediction. By nature, it is not always going to be correct but given the data history and statistical projection, sometimes we can get pretty close to what will actually happen. In this case, we are hoping that the prediction for this winter is spot on, because it would be nice to have a beautiful snowy Christmas during these trying times.

Why is the prediction for winter showing snow now? Well, the Pacific has been warming lately and the warming ocean water is predicted to cause a week of downpours followed by a potential "snowmageddon" starting on the east coast. The unusual rise in ocean temperature has also caused other issues - such as wetter, colder weather across southern states and warmed weather across the north, an unusual pattern especially for this time of year. In addition to weather, the changes in ocean temperature have also shifted the ocean ecosystem which has significantly increased and decreased certain animal populations.

If the predictions of snow are true, what parts of the United States will be impacted? More than likely the northeastern states and the impact is most likely to happen in the second half of the winter season. Potentially, the central and south-eastern states could be impacted as well depending on the direction in which the predicted storms move. As of right now, these storms are theoretical and not being tracked as part of a prediction of a live pressure system. We shall see what happens over the next few weeks!
