    Good point. Having as active a jet stream as last year but with less cold would make for an interesting winter in the mountains. I would bet places closer to the coast that got piles of snow last year will get their fair share of both rain and snow in an active pattern. Who knows though it could be super cold and DC gets crushed.
    Snow!

    Just as long as the less cold does not translate into January thaws. That is what was great about last season - minimal thawing.

    The forecasts I have seen all point to a good winter in the NE if not as cold and r@#* free as last winter. Also I'd say that overall confidence is lower than last year (or 2) given El Nino. But it looks to NOT be a typical El Nino year (which are often bad in the NE) due to numerous factors, several of which were in play last year (or 2) and helped with the cold (PDO for instance). Worth a web search for more details.

    These forecasts look nothing like the links above which shows an image far far away from the official forecasts I've seen or any model run for that matter.

    Check out Accuweather and Weatherbell for starters.
    2017/18 =
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Exactly. Winter without thaws like the last are rare. I'm excited to see how it all plays out.
    Snow!
