Winter '09 / '10 - Outlook - Eric Horst

Eric Horst - Director...Wx Information Center  @Millersville University of Pennsylvania

"...we could see about 36 inches of snow this year, about 10 inches (ed:  ~40%) above normal, and about two to three times more than we've had in the last two winters combined.

"...I am anticipating...a greater frequency of coastal storms...

"That can have a notable effect on snowfall here. For example, last nor'easter, on March 2...gave us 6 inches of snow.

"This winter, ...will be watching that southern storm track...  'That may mean four, five, six storms take that track.  It doesn't mean we get hammered four, five, six times, but there is going to be the opportunity to develop these.

"The only caveat...if the waters in the equatorial Pacific cool (sic) too much, we could have a "super El Niño" winter, which would be more wet than white."
