Winter '17 / '18 - Eurasia Snow Cover - OCT Preview

Cohen projecting above normal Eurasia snow cover for OCT ahead of an expected weak La Nina winter (D-J-F).

Nine previous weak La Nina winters ... including the famed 1995 - 1996 season ... have been observed during the Eurasia snow cover period of record (1967 - 2016). Only two NEWxSFC forecast stations -- BGM and ALB -- have a statistically significant correlation between season-total snowfall and above normal Eurasia snow cover.
