We are having a very snowy winter in Anchorage, Alaska this year. Right now the temperatures are pretty normal for January.

One thing I've noticed while watching in the 11 years I've been here, is that whenever it's warmer and mild in the NY area, it's cold and more stormy here. When the weather is bad in the NY area, it's generally a sign of mild nice weather here. I can almost predict the weather here watching the NY area weather.

We started with a couple of weeks at 20 to 30 degrees (Fahrenheit) below normal here in November, then it went to above normal temps in December and now its back to normal temps. However the last two months last year had record snowfall amounts.

If what you say is true and my observations are correct about this, it should get far warmer here at the same time and the snow will stop.

Here though nothing is truly normal. At any time it can drop to below zero and then go to above 40 the next day, even in January.


Indeed your observations are correct. There is a Aleutian ridge that is projected to become more established over Alaska. This helps destabalise the Polar Vortex over Greenland. This ridge ideally needs to stretch over the North Pole to Svalbard for a good progression of wintry weather into Europe. Of course there is more to it but its a signal people look out for when model watching! It helps create blocking of the Atlantic

My other half is from NYC and agrees with you, it's strange how the weather is opposites in both places.

Well i'm on the South coast of England, it's 10 degrees C and not a cloud in the sky. I hope it lasts, so i'm going for a walk on the beach to enjoy it in case anything does change.

What Jrmcleod has been doing in his threads is giving an overview of what might happen in the weather before mainstream weather agencies do it. It is quite obvious that at least the Met Office in the UK, will not offer warnings until very close to the time in order to maintain their credibility in the public's eyes.

What he is not doing is; claiming to predict things 100% like some kind of mystic or insisting we are all going to perish because of the weather.

This thread is useful as it could give those worse affected (which may only be a few), extra time to make plans. I really don't see the problem with that or the need to get riled up because in your opinion you would like to see a different subject matter being posted on ATS. People have free will, like it or not and will continue to flag the threads they find interesting. No amount of vitriol will change that.

Thanks for the advance information Mr Mcleod

At 48, I have seen winters that vary from quite warm, to bitterly cold- I grew up in Minnesota. Even if we get a mild early winter, by mid January we get a bitterly cold spell of -30F or so, that lasts a week or 2.

While I admit this is a bit unusal for this time of year, it's not something that hasn't been seen before, and I'm sure will be seen again. I've seen 65F on Christmas day, with 20 below just a few days later. This year, we saw a 61F day just last week, and I'm near the border of Canada in North Dakota now. In fact, quite a few days' record highs have been broken this year, but that doesn't mean that we won't see some really nasty cold weather of the -40F/C range here in January- usually about mid January. And in years like this, we usually don't see the heavy snow until late February or early March. Snow HAS been seen as late as early June here, and if some of you recall, we had a late season blizzard last year that took out thousands of utility poles.

The only thing that would be weird, would be if our temps stayed moderate as they have so far. I don't see that happening myself. Bundle up folks, winter is coming and it's gonna be a cold one for awhile.

Hi, this is my first ever response on ATS, so a big hello to you all! I,m not interested in all the bickering this topic has caused, but would like to say I think the OP is very brave to post all the information he has, he is not claiming to be psychic,foretelling the end end of days,or making a hullaboo about it, he is merely providing us with information, that I personally wouldnt understand without his input on...coloured maps,arrows.etc etc!! thankyou for the explanations,very interesting, and I would much rather use this forewarning than wait for MSM to give me a few hours notice!

Hey, first post here on ATS, i created an account just to say good job to the OP.

I live in Oregon and I've been asking what happened to winter too, but I just saw the news forecast for next week and they are predicting snow (finally) for next Wednesday/Thursday.

Nice work!

Good stuff. I have looked at many sites that line up with the potential that could happen regarding your post. I also find a few that seem to not quite line up with your work or suggestions. However, I used to be a Boy Scout years ago and I still remember, be prepared. On another note if this pans out, the flip side could suggest more, and increased famine and dryness in other regions so this event is very relevant regardless of where it happens. Godspeed.

Summary for Canada

It's January, so it'll be cold with plenty of snow right through the middle of February. Then things should start warming up with the potential of all the snow to have melted by the beginning of April. As they say April showers bring May flowers....

At this point I just want snow. No matter how much or how bad. It's eerie to not even have gotten half an inch of snow so far into the snow season. It was like 55 degrees today here in Chicago. Alaska, on the other hand...

Star and Flag for all the effort you have put into this thread.

I was 'told' that February was going to be cold and snow, so maybe it will be here sooner. I don't enjoy snow as it makes all my family's joints ache more.
But my youngest got a new gadget for Christmas. It's a forecaster in a ??? a sort of glasstube snowglobe thing and she has said she would like a storm just to see the thing change from clear and see the particles clumb together.LOL

Hope it is not BLIZZARD as in that Farmers Almanac. But I am sure you will keep us all informed. Thanks.

it was about 30 deg this morning here in sd when my boyfriend started his car, he came inside for 15 min and by the time he got outside there was snow on the ground and frost on his windows of his truck.

Now i say here that you were spot on.

Good job, star and flag
