It looks like we could be hit with a colder than normal winter this year. That's according to Bill O'Toole, the Hagers-Town Town and County Almanack's weather predictor, who says we could also see a lot of snow. "I think we are going to see a lot more than we have in the last couple of years. I don't expect any snow-mageddon, like it was four years ago, February 2010, but indications are we are in a neutral pattern," said O'Toole. "I'm not talking about El Nino or La Nina. This would indicate that temperatures would be at least as cold as normal. There's a lot of moisture around in the jet stream that would indicate we are going to be getting enough cold air that would suggest that we are going to be getting more than the average amount of snow," continued O'Toole.
The 218th edition of the almanac predicts the first snow in the region could fall from November 4th to the 6th. The almanac predicts nor'easters for February 21 and 22, and March 15 and 16.
