Accuweather: Brace For Snowy Winter
El Nino will lead to more snow across the mid-Atlantic.
Are you dreaming of ski trips and snow days?
If so, your dream may come true. 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, when we had 77 inches of snow.
(Remember when, according to The Baltimore Sun, Elkridge had 38.3 inches during Snowmageddon?)
Winter of 2010-11 saw 14.4 inches and less than 2 inches this past winter, according to National Weather Service data.
The Baltimore Sun, which first cited 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.
