Snowbirdbob is going out on a limb. He wants me to post his winter forecast for 2011-2012 here. Enjoy the read and let's see how he does.
His forecast is NOT the official forecast of Channel 7.
Hello Everyone, I am going to give you my 2011/2012 Winter Weather Outlook.
1.Don't stock up on firewood based off of my forecast.
2. Don't count on your electric bill being high.
3.Don't blame me at your location if you receive a major ice storm or don't get any snow..lol
4. This is my long-range forecast & I am sticking to it no matter the outcome.
5. My forecast last year turned out great. I was a month off on the central & southern sections of Arkansas getting there turn for big winter weather events, but boy did they get hammered..
November 2011 I see near normal temps in Central & Southern Sections,& slightly below normal for northern sections. As far as precip, I see above normal precip for central & southern sections & near normal for northern sections. I would look for some late November ice in northern sections of the state, which could effect areas as far south as the Conway, Russellville, & Searcy, but nothing major.
December 2011 I am calling out this month for a major Arctic Outbreak in the Dec. 16-31. I see near normal temps. for the entire state Dec.1-15. I'm also calling this month out for major winter weather events Dec.16-31... well-below average temps. for the entire state. and a big Dec. Ice for central & southern sections. As Weather Ninja says..Ice..Ice Baby. For you in northern Arkansas, A couple minor snow events, but not your turn YET!!
Jan.2012... Jan.1-15 I see well-below normal temps. for the entire state. Jan.16-31 temps. rebound to near normal. Northern Arkansas, watch out this year..It's your time agian for big snow events.
Feb.2012... This is the month for all sorts of suprises.. below normal temperatures for the entire state. Look out again central & southern sections for a big February ice and a couple big snow events for northern sections..
DECEMBER 2011... 15-31..major cold outbreaks. Lingering low level cold air could lead to major ice..
Hopefully all snow!!
As Always..We Shall See??!!
