WINTER OUTLOOK 2013-2014 UPDATED JULY 21
Still early to make accurate predictions however all the data that I have looked at seem to indicate Neutral Pattern for the West early season (Normal to perhaps slightly below in the North, and higher odds central and southern areas). Weak El Nino is likely by January or February increasing odds for heavy snow for the Sierra, Southwest and Central Rockies. The Pacific Northwest and Canada can still benefit from Weak El Nino (Stronger El Nino would be drier). Early predications might show normal amounts in the NW with a trend for warmer temperatures. The Rockies (Wasatch, Central and Southern Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona) including the Sierra might be deeper as the season progresses! Still too early to put lot’s of confidence out. Thus far the models are consistent. Fella our mascot is ready!
