It's what we're all really here for wink.gif

Hard to believe we're approaching the 10 year anniversary of the epic 07-08 season and with talk of a La Nina event becoming more likely, thought it would be useful to have this thread open.

Only a few more months!

07/08 was epic and was the first year I started recording my own personal accumulations. That year was by far the most intense winter I've ever experienced. Out by my moms house in Mansfield, ON I recorded 338cm of snow, an all time record. What I would give to have a repeat of that.

Going to be difficult making forecasts for the upcoming winter. -QBO, low solar and the prospect of at least a weak Nina, things are looking interesting to say the least. Last winter although there was a La Niņa recorded, it was very weak and basically diminished to ENSO neutral conditions as the winter progressed. This winter I expect La Niņa to play a bigger role in the general pattern. Still need to see what the PDO looks like as we get closer to winter as it is something that's still up in the air.

I hope you bring us luck. Last year was less than stellar, other than the period just before Christmas. Seemed to be a lot of ice storms, or rain followed cold dry spells. The year before...well, we don't talk about that round here, the scars still haven't fully healed. We are due a winter that is above average in terms of snow and cold, but of course mother nature doesn't keep a score. Where do you live?

Not setting the bar too high for this coming season. I would even take a repeat of last winter aside from that dreary mess in January which destroyed my will to live. December 2016 was awesome and February 2017 had lots of days with snow cover and some solid snowfalls. We even manged to hit average snowfall in Markham which was a big plus.

January was the problem with last winter. A good January means the accumulation of a decent base, that can last well into March. January is the peak of winter, and if it underperforms as badly as last year, then it really effects the overall feel of a winter. A poor December, or February are not ideal, but can be forgotten if January behaves. It's a bit like having a cool soggy July and how that makes you feel about the whole summer season.

07-08 was decent for me, of course 08-09 was the epic winter, but this last winter blew 08-09 out of the water in terms of length of winter weather I received. I really only received lots of snow in December 08, and this winter I received decent snow in December, some in January, and then lots in February and a tiny bit in March. NYE this last year had a really big snow storm for me.

It's true in many ways it was an amazing summer, but we also had to deal with all this smoke and temps reaching in the mid to upper 30's sometimes. I think we're going to start breaking down this west coast ridge as we head into astronomical fall, and as Nina conditions strengthen, we'll go back into a snowy wonderland again.

Well let's hope this winter is like 13-14. I believe you guys had a great winter that year? I live in North York.

We've had terrible winters on the west coast from 2008 until last year so for me anything the east has to offer would probably be better. 2015-16 was terrible across Canada, I got 1cm of snow all winter in Vancouver. dry.gif

Nice to see cooling in the equatorial pacific. Fear of El Nino's return seems to have been for nothing as this looks like a sign of La Nina returning for the winter.

Something tells me this is going to be a good winter in the east. A colder winter in the west, lots of big arctic outbreaks in Alberta towards NW ON. Down our way (S/E ON) I am expecting a battle of warm and cold. Which will be perfect for storms. Im forecasting above normal snowfall everywhere from Windsor to Quebec City.

Last winter was a tale of two regions, while most of the east coast down into Quebec and Eastern ON got creamed, the entire GTA corridor (including Alliston) down to Windsor was left with a very unimpressive season. Up in Alliston, our largest snowfall last season couldn't even break 15cm. That's pretty sad.

I think last winter was just fine around here. Our largest snowfall was around 20cm and it happened twice here. December was fantastic and February was pretty solid down here as well. January was atrocious and I hope that doesn't happen again anytime soon. March and April had their moments as well which manged to bump us up to average snowfall in Markham.

I think it really depended on where you were last winter as the contrast from Hamilton to Barrie was enormous with varying conditions in between.

Pearson only recorded 85cm of snow, that's pretty dismal if you ask me.

Last winter sucked major. The only 'storm' was that lake effect beauty in March.
Yes, it melted right away, but at least it was nice to see the snow fly before the season was done.

Last winter Buttonville airport (which is around my area in Markham) recorded 142.6cm of snow which is bang on seasonal for them. Almost half of that snow was from December alone.

I can attest to that as there was quite a bit of snow around here last winter but I admit it could have been better. January in particular really drove all of us insane when looking back at last winter's banter and complaint thread.
