    AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Joe Bast*rdri Forecasts Coldest Winter in Five Years

    AccuWeather.com Chief Long-Range Forecaster Joe Bast*rdri today released his 2008-09 Winter Season Forecast addressing issues of average temperature and precipitation impacting the nation. His forecast calls for one of the coldest winters in several years across much of the East.

    The core of cold was centered across the Midwest last year but is expected to be farther east this year. laminate floori says the winter of 2008-2009 will be viewed as the hardest in several years. "It may be a shock to some when compared with the above-average temperatures of last year in the East. It will put some 'brrrrrr' in the saddle of folks who have not had to deal with such things for a while," he cautions.

    "In the eastern half of the nation, people will look at the winter as bookends of cold," laminate floori said. He says the overall colder and snowier winter will be off to a cold start in December with perhaps the roughest winter month for much of the nation. It may finish with another cold spell in late January and February.

    Between the bookends of cold, laminate floori expects "the January thaw of old winter lore" but it will offer only a temporary break to consumers. "The winter as a whole in the population-dense eastern third of the nation will be a one-two punch of higher heating prices and lower temperatures. Given this economic environment, the winter will push some homeowners to the brink," he concludes. In some cases, homeowners trying to keep their residences as warm as last winter could spend hundreds of dollars more this heating season.

    Temperatures across most of the West will be warmer than last year and should be warmer than normal, which will help consumers by keeping heating cost increases in check. The northern Rockies and Northwest will still have more snow than normal but not as much as last year, where some locations developed a snow pack that reached twice normal levels.

    The Midwest was blasted by snow last year and many communities ran very low on salt to keep roads clear of ice. Despite the elevated cost of salt this winter season, these areas will receive a break in the form of less snow than last year. Unfortunately, the East will not turn out as lucky, as more snowfall than last year is expected.

    Not sure what if any impact this has for us? Although he does tend to forecast cold most years! B)

    I think i will stick with the Meto over good ol' Joe, Im sure every year is going to be a cold one according to him and to be honest even if he gets it right for the US, Im not sure how much effect it will have here.

    Have just read Joe's blog.

    I have to agree that whilst we were stomping around in snow last week, the global warmists were indeed still banging on about how warm it is!!!

    Not in my house it wasn't.

    Mother nature does as she pleases, and even before the industrial revolution [when surely the weather would have changed, but didn't] winters were cold, and summers were variable.

    The Human race is very arrogant in assuming WE have something to do with how the weather works. The earth is mostly Ocean for starters.

    It was only in the early 80's when a mini Ice Age was expected. No global warming around then.

    Too much money to be made from scaring people about so called Global warming. Buying and selling too.

    The first person to convince the Chinese and Indian peoples to cut down on emissions has my admiration. But it won't happen.

    Rant over. sorry.

    He is a rubbish forecaster, but does not believe in global warming, just as most weather forecasters don't. They call it Global CHANGE.

    Because it always has, and always will.
