Accuweather: Brace For Snowy Winter
El Nino will lead to more snow across the mid-Atlantic.
Are you dreaming of sleds and ski trips and snow days?
If so, you may not have to dream for long. Accuweather's forecast model for this coming winter calls for the El Nino climate pattern above average snowfall in the mid-Atlantic and parts of the Midwest.
The Baltimore area sees an average of 20.2 inches of snow each winter, but we've yet to scrape that number since the 2009-10 season, where we saw 77 inches of snow. The winter of 2010-11 saw 14.4 inches and this past winter saw less than two, according to National Weather Service data.
The Baltimore Sun, which first caught Accuweather's report, noted that the weather website's May predictions about what this summer would feel like, with plenty of severe weather in the mix, turned out to be accurate.
