2016-2017 Winter Weather Preview

Many of our clients and friends have been asking about the potential winter weather forecast for the upcoming season. While we don’t have any “miracle vase” which will provide us with the answers, our weather resources provide us with analytics based on historical data and weather science.

This is what we are told so far. The weather patterns being observed are very similar to those of the 1983-84 winter season. During that snow season, a predominantly low to moderate snow fall winter, succumbed to several late season events in the Northeast to finish the winter within 5 inches of normal average snowfall.

Here are some interesting predictions:
• While 2015-16 was one of the mildest years on record, the coming winter is expected to a cold along the East Coast, and specifically in the Northeast.
• As chilly temperatures are forecast, it may arrive slowly; the Northeast is trending on the mild side for November in the first half of December.
• Average to above normal snowfall is expected for a large swath from the Northern Plains to the East Coast.
• The chances of a major storm is lower than the past few years, the projections indicate more small and medium sized events. With that said, a major storm cannot be ruled out.

Snow and ice can create dangerous conditions. Ensuring that your property is a safe place to live, work and learn this winter (and all year long) is our #1 priority.
